During the winter months, I love to crochet blankets, mittens, and hats! I love to crochet hats because they are a quick craft, and they are completely versatile. I often take requests from fans of my work and create a pattern uniquely my own. I can look at a picture, and somehow I know how I can create it with a hook and yarn. Join with me in my favorite pastime and make a useful and playful hat!

When I started this project, I was expecting to have an adorable panda hat, but by the last stitch, I had a creature who defied definition. I ask of you to make this hat and give it a name. Let me know what you created in a comment below.
