I used this pattern from The Train to Crazy, with some slight modifications.
First, instead of crocheting the hat to fit his cute little head, I made it much larger using a wool yarn, and felted it down to the correct size. This gives it a different look and feel compared to the original.
I also decided to put the spikes down the back, rather across his head.
I added a little yarn chin strap so he'd leave it on his head for more than 2 seconds (though not without trying to get it off yet). He still hasn't quite figured out hats.
My husband has already put in his request for an adult size version. :)
This is my last entry into Celebrate Color.
