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.

This week's theme was: K is for Kit

Friday night is always pizza night in our house. We do a compromise between making everything from scratch and buying a pizza ready made. There will be some ham and mushroom as well to add to the ingredients shown.
