It has suddenly become Autumn in Melbourne and I have been so enjoying the crisp mornings playing in the park with Casper, who only ever wants to be outside. I try to take him to the park as much as possible so he doesn't get crazy inside the house. Since the weather has been getting cold, this morning I set out to make him a really warm hat.
I just made up the pattern by measuring his head- I think I could make a tutorial as it was pretty simple pattern drafting.
The hat is made from this wacky tartan velvet that is very old and very beautiful to touch. The lining is made from an old lambswool jumper that had a few too many holes to be saved. I think it will be perfect for this winter especially for wild and windy walks on the beach.
