I’ve tried crochet and it didn’t end well (nothing which ends with Mama throwing a tantrum is good) so I am always in awe of people who can hook their way from a ball of wool to something magnificent. Kat Goldin who writes Slugs on the Refrigerator has magic fingers and uses them to create the most magnificent baby and children’s hats ever.
Kat is a one woman cottage industry designing and making stunning crochet hats. The pictures speak for themselves and I think she strikes the right balance between fun and cool.
You can buy her hats from her Etsy and Folksy stores with sizes from 1 month to 3 – 7 years. If you’re in the UK the pricing seems to work better on Folksy.
Not only does Kat sell hats but she also writes hat patterns. If you fancy whipping up the Aviator Pilot Hat (pictured top) then you can buy the PDF pattern from Etsy. If you love an owl (who doesn’t love an owl?) then you can download the Owl Hat Pattern for free.
