GINGER'S HAT

If you’ve never seen anything by Aardman, you’re missing out. This animation studio puts out some of the best cartoons out there. I love Wallace and Gromit. Gromit’s a knitter after all. Anyhow, a few years back, they put out a movie called Chicken Run, and once again, there was a character who knitted, and most of the chickens were wearing some sort of knitted wear rendered in clay. This is my version of the hat worn by the main character, Ginger. It’s a simple roll brim hat that has two little I-cords at the top. I’d rate this one easy.

SIZE Adult. One size fits all but those with freakishly large heads.

Weave in loose ends. You may need to stitch a bit at where the I-cords meet. I had a hole between ‘em. Put hat on head. Attempt to escape Tweedy’s Farm.
