How to combine a huge dose of cuteness with a sprinkling of retro humor? We’ve got just the thing right here – a DIY crochet project to make your very own kiddy; the Cabbage Patch Doll hat!
Anyone familiar with toys and TV from the 80s will surely remember the Cabbage Patch Kids – chances are you might have been a fan of them as a kid yourself! In which case, why not bring a little of the 80s into the hearts and souls of that 21st century family in your life? You might have thought you’d never see a quality piece of Cabbage Patch Kids merchandise again – you were wrong!
Cute, Funny, Completely Brilliant!
It might look like a pretty big undertaking, but it’s actually a deceptively easy hat to make. And of course, the effort you put in will be more than worth it when you see how adorable that already-cute little lady in your life looks wearing it! You’ll find it hard to keep a straight face – chances are so will she!
In terms of tools and supplies, there’s almost nothing to it:
- Yarn in the color of your choosing
- A crochet hook (6mm)
- Ribbon for tying and decoration
- Safety pins (small tub or box)
- Sharp scissors
Perfect for use as a fancy dress accessory or simply to keep her toasty warm on cold days, you’ll always be finding any excuse to whip it out and put it to use! And if all this radical retro glory wasn’t enough, how about the fact that the pattern and instructions are also fully free of charge to use?
