That is so cute! My hubby probably wouldn't go out with me in public if I wore it...but who cares what he thinks?! Tongue I love it and would love to make one. Did you use a pattern?

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

No pattern, i just knit a trip like a scarf, sewed it together and made the ears by decrasing the # of stitches and sewed them on too, with the left over


and in answer to the other question of what i used. I just used an acrylic....well what do i call it...its not wool but you know what i mean, with a combo of this other wool i found that wasn't spun so tight or regularly. Put them togetehr and treated it as one...hmm sorry i cant explain better, im not really down with the lingo

I just casted one stitch off each side as i went. It's surprisingly easy. I tried it since it should work theoretically and it did!

I thinks its a bit of a trial and error method
