Lemonade from Lemons

A while back, I saw this hat posted on Ravelry.

I loved the cat hat and I LOVED the yarn from Hedgehog Fibers.

Unfortunately, no shop near me sells Hedgehog and, honestly, I didn’t want to spend a lot of cash on more yarn.

One day, while walking through Joann’s, I saw Big Twist Sincerely in Cupcake Confetti.

It had a similar look to the Hedgehog fiber at at $2.99 (after coupon) how could I resist.

I used the pattern from the Pussy Hat Project (free pattern by Kat Coyle).

I LOVED working with this yarn!

It is super soft and it was so nice to work with.

Where do the lemons come in?

Here you go:

The hat ended up being HUGE

Seriously, ENORMOUS.

I really didn’t want to frog it or throw it away.

So, I folded the sides in towards the back.

Fixed them in place with a pompom.

Used the pompom string tails to whip stitch the folded back down.

Then I made braids to connect to the bulky bottom in the back.

It now is a seriously cute hat!

You can’t tell in the picture, but it still has the look of a cat hat and is so soft!

I have a ton of this yarn left over and plan on making Miss ME a hat also.

Have a good day!
