I'll put the update here so you won't have to scroll down for it:
So what do you do when your kid won't keep the hat that you so lovingly made for her on her head. You tie it on!!!
The new(ish) and improved piggytail hat:
bwa ha ha ha! Now she'll keep it on for more than 5 sec... Man, it's hard to outwit a 2 year old...
Okay, the hat itself doesn't have piggy tails, but it does have spots where you can stick your piggy tails through.
This is dot v.1. She has the craziest, wiliest, knotiest hair in the world. (probably not true, but it seems like it
) It is a daily struggle to comb her hair. So when I am finally able to get it into piggy tails, I'm not taking them out for anything, especially not to put a hat on to go out side. Thus the birth of the piggy tail hat.
I thought about leaving a hole on the top for a pony tail to come through, but that seemed like a little much for one hat. Perhaps another day.
I thought about making embellishments for the hat, but the yarn is pretty busy on it's own. It's Lion Brand, prints, 100% wool, knit on size 4 dpns, stockinette stitch with two buttonholes where the piggy tails come through.
What do you think fellow crafsters?
