Whimsical Witch Hat for Halloween
I'd spotted this Whimsical Witch-Hat pattern on Ravelry

Here's my version...
Whimiscal Witch Hat

To be honest, I ended up using the pattern more as a guideline than something to follow exactly. This was because the pattern calls for worsted weight yarn, which I don’t use and which isn’t that common in the UK and I wanted to use up my stash of double knitting left over from various blankets and other projects. As I didn’t want to buy new yarn for what is, after all, just a silly dressing up hat, I used the pattern as a starting point and then just winged it.

I am, however, delighted with the result as it’s very similar to the hat my avatar wears in Habitica.

It even sort of suits me. :)

I’m now planning to make another one in black.

I sort of wish that I could wear it as a winter hat, though sadly I lack the courage. Though I might take it to an SF convention. :)

Oh, if I ever live somewhere where I could bear to wear a hat, I would totally want one of those!

It SO suits you - you should wear it all the time.

It's actually very frustrating because I find it very hard to find a hat that looks good on me. So it's typical that a style that does suit me is too silly to wear in normal life. :-)

That's a fabulous hat. You look like you could be a professor at Hogwarts. :)

It's a pity I can't wear it at work. But my students would think I had gone bonkers. :-)
