March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. I have done two Dr. Seuss related crochet projects. One I did last year I crocheted a Cat in the Hat hat and tail for my daughter. Even before that I had made a Thing One and Thing Two wig for my niece’s twins. Here is the Thing One hat:
I started with a crochet beanie in single crochet. Then I took a feathered boa and sewed it in a circular pattern to the hat. It was the twins’ first Halloween and I think they wore the hats for thirty seconds but it was a lot of fun to make them. I sewed the feathered boa because I didn’t want to use glue since babies would be wearing it. Also that way the boa could also be removed and then the beanie could be worn by itself making it a more versatile piece.
Fun project and always nice to do something for others.
