Flowerpower – I don’t know her real name – made this impressive hat and has provided instructions for us:
Any yarn you want, really. The main color is good in Fisherman, it looks rather noodly. The meatballs are TLC acrylic in a darkish red. All is in worsted weight.
I used the pattern for the kittyille/devil hat in Stitch ‘n Bitch. You could use any hat you like, I just liked the stockinette base.
Pick up and knit 13 stitches for each stalk, and knit even for about 22 rows. With white, make the eyes by increasing, then decreasing (I’m vey specific, I know). Make two meatballs, and sew them on. I cna’t remember where I got my pattern, but you will have to experiment to get them the right size.
Pick up three stitches, and make an i-cord. Make as long as you want. Repeat as may times as desired.
Ties may be added with meatballs on the end, if you wish. It would just be another i-cord with meatballs on the ends.
For a poseable noodle, run a piece of wire up the center of the i-cord.
Wear His praises proudly, RAmen.
