This is precisely what I was thinking when I stumbled across this pattern from Stana D. Sortor from Stana’s Critters. What a fun Christmas present for my son-in-law to play with my baby granddaughter. She loves to play and sing and laugh and this great hat is as tall as a giraffe! It’s exactly one foot tall. I am stuffing the tip top with light fluff and sewing in some criss-cross strands of yarn to hold it in place. To keep the top flat I’ll insert a paper plate first since this hat is probably not going to see the wash.
So even though she’s so very small, I’m sure my granddaughter and her dad will have a ball, and play just like Thing one and Thing two. It was easy, peasy and incredibly fun to knit. The cat in the hat knows exactly what he is talking about! And yes, the iconic book will accompany this present of fun.
