crocheted cat hat

This is my entry to the September Whiplash contest. The challenge was to make any kind of hat. I got the inspiration for my hat from my cat, Maui:

crocheted cat hat

I crocheted the cat hat in single crochet from black chenille with cream chenille accents. After reading the tapestry crochet post on whipup a few weeks ago, I’ve been wanting to try it, so I added a zig-zag border around the bottom, to match the ‘M’ markings on Maui’s forehead. I finished the bottom with reverse single crochet.:

I single crocheted cream fronts and black backs for the ears, then joined the fronts to the backs with a reverse single crochet border:

The hat still looked a bit plain, so I added three flowers embroidered with lazy daisy stitch, with bead centres:

 

Maui seems to approve of the finished hat:

 

I’m entering the cat hat into the design category of Whiplash this month.

    Hi All,

    I’m really glad you like my cat hat. I’m so sorry, but there is no pattern for it! I made it up as I went along and didn’t keep track of what I was doing – this was three years ago, before I even started designing crochet patterns.

    Sorry to disappoint!
