Jester Hat in Polar Fleece
It is unusual for me to use polar fleece, but it sure works well for some fun winter hats. The mannequin head here is pretty overwhelmed - the hat is an extra large size, but still you get an idea of how fun the points are on this hat. It will go into Grandma's Attic tomorrow am for a young man to try on. His aunt told me he has always wanted a jester hat and has never been able to find one large enough to fit.
Oh Oh, those words were a challenge to milliner me of course. So worked out a pattern with 24.5 inch head size. Tried it out with some fleece on hand. This will be a draft - if it fits and he wants it, hurray. If not, ah well, it has been a fun experiment. And I think it will sell either to someone else at Grandma's or on Etsy.
The red balls on the tips are red felt beads.
I'm still smiling, as this was delightful to create and quite different that the usual crafting.
