Jeremy’s phrenology head is coming in very handy as a model for baby hats. This one has wildcat ears for a fellow Northwestern Wildcats fan. I wasn’t entirely happy with how the wildcat paw booties worked out, but they’re still pretty cute.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these hats ever since I first saw the pattern, but it took me a while to get around to it. Jeremy’s phrenology head is modelling for me since I didn’t have the adorable recipient around in person. The hat was fun to make, and I’ve mastered the loops and tricky pigtail placement, so if you want to turn a small person of your own acquaintance into a Cabbage Patch Kid, let me know.
