Crazy Cat Hat
I’m a big cat lover, they are an everyday comfort and support, and a constant source of inspiration. So this hat is a tribute to all cats and their cute, crazy face! It’s a very fun knit, and a cute accessory to wear as a pop of color on your head with any outfit. Besides, it will put a smile on everyone’s face!

Notes Don’t be afraid if you’ve never knitted with more than 2 colors at a time. When the cat heads come to light, you’ll realise it’s not more complicated. Just keep your skeins organized, be careful to carry your strands loosely inside your work and to maintain a consistent tension. I advise you to make a large swatch of a few cat heads before getting started.
