i'm oin the pit for a production of seussical (if you happen to live in central maryland, it's at carroll community college next weekend! http://www.geocities.com/treeoflifetroupe/. end of plug) and i'm making my dear director a stuffed cat in the hat hat. and i'm having a little bit of a mind block trying to design it.

what i'm thinking; starting from the bottom, and crocheting a pretty big circle. doing a few rows of single crochet, then closing back up the circle to a certain point. tubing the body of the hat with sc, then, once it's to height, close the rest of the circle, stuffing in between.

does that sound like it's going to work? i'm trying not to crash and burn.

thanks!

Have you though about making it in seperate pieces and then stitching together with a yarn needle? (I wasn't too sure by your description if thats what you planned on doing.)

I would do it in three pieces: the tube for the body of the hat, the circle for the brim, and the circle for the top. (Does that make sense?) And then stitching them all together, stuffing as needed for stiffness.

Might work...

Keep us updated!
I wanna see pics.

i actually am done the body, having done it all in one piece, except the top of the hat.

it'll probably be up tomorrow.
