the police box hat

snufkin
Hey kiddies. So I've been working on this off and on for over a year, and it was only the oncoming of tardis_day  that got me to finish this project. Also I had this image in my mind of families wearing these funny hats and settling down on the sofa together to watch Doctor Who.  

Click here to go to the pdf pattern for this hat.  It's a tam pattern written in a couple of sizes. There's a chart for the words that can be duplicate stitched, satin stitched, or cross stitched. The pictures below are cross stitched. A crochet version will be coming along too. I hope it cheers you and let me know if you make one. I dare you to wear it in public. 

Thanks to: tigereye, contrarier, russiamoore, microrevolt.org

Took these pictures in a rush -- maybe get some better ones up sometime.

Hee, hee that's what I was going for. I once bought a poofy velvet beret at a faire, and when I looked in the mirror with it on, laffed myself silly. When I put this on I have a goosey grin on my face. In fact, I think this sort of thing works best in pairs. One for you and one for a friend to wear so you can "admire" each other. ;0)
