In keeping with the horned-hat theme (see my unicorn hat here), and because my daughter loves dinosaur-type creatures, I made her a dragon hat! For two days she wouldn’t take it off, inside or out, and I had the pleasure of watching a tiny dragon roar around my house. Nothing better than watching my baby wear and be excited about something I made for her! Plus, it’s a lot easier to laugh at the mishaps of toddler life when said destructive toddler is dressed like a dragon. Toddler empties the contents of the silverware drawer while you’re trying to cook dinner? Frustrating. Dragon empties the silverware drawer? Well that’s what any dragon would do, don’t you think? Maybe I’ve been inhaling too much acrylic yarn fumes…
A few pattern notes: I freehanded the pattern and used Lion Brand Homespun, Red Heart Super Saver, and Lion Brand Hometown USA. The tassels will need to be redone because they’ve frayed too much (darn LB Homespun and it’s fuzziness) and I’m thinking of adding some ribbons into them because, ribbons.
I’ve got another hat hot off the hook for Mr Pickle that I can’t wait to show you all…tomorrow!
