Hat for Cats

After making a hat for my kitten, I decided that I needed to make some for my older cats too. It wasn’t fair for the kitten to have all the fun of modeling my creations. This hat is pretty much the same design as the Kitten Hat, but sized up to fit adult cats.

To finish the hat, all you need to do is make a pom pom and attach it to the top.

This hat is super simple, and takes very little yarn. I think my cats look adorable in them, but they seem to disagree. At least they are all good about tolerating my work long enough for me to take some pictures of them.
