The hat that started it all: the giraffe hat. The original giraffe hat was made in October of 2009 because I needed a Halloween costume. I had lost out on an ebay auction for a detective hat, so making a giraffe hat was the only logical solution. Soon after that I started developing other adult sized animal hats.
Writing the pattern took forever. I knit the hat in a beautiful yarn that ended up being discontinued, so I knit another. I now own three giraffe hats, but it was worth it. It is my favorite pattern by far.
If you are interested in purchasing the pattern, it is available on ravelry. Or if you are without a ravelry account, fear not. You can press the buy now button and get a copy. The price is $5.
