We have this crazy friend, we call him "poulpy" ever since he came to a party with a dead octopus on his head ( poulpe = octopus in french).

So when he invited us to his birthday, I knew I had to craft him something really special.
I made him this hat with old superbulky stash yarn, in his favorite colors !  Everybody had a good laugh, and the octopus is detachable so he can wear the hat without it for a more casual look :-D

I hope you like it :-)

Lol, I bet the dead octopus was quite a sight to see!  Your hat came out really cool.  I like the color combonation.

Thanks guys. And yes, even though it was like 15 years ago (argh !!), I can still see him distinctly in my grand parent's swimming pool (before going to the party) playing with his dead octopus...
I was so afraid my grand parents would see him... as they're quite posh and would probably have forbid me forever to bring friends around again...!!!!!  Tongue  Grin

I looked for a photo but this was before digital pictures.. Nah, don't call me old !!  Tongue Cry
