... a mini fez

Dan loves a Fez and I love making mini hats.  So i made a mini fez.  Makes sense!

Mini hats are great and realised recently I have made loads but not got round to posting many of them so I will make a post of mini hats soon.....  I started making them a couple of years ago as part of Innocent Smoothies' Big Knit Campaign and have carried on.  I will be making hats for their campaign again this year which aims to raise money to help older people keep warm in winter.  The hats are sold on bottles of smoothie which is cool.  If you can knit or crochet join in!

Exciting news - if you want to make your own mini fez you now can (although this one is a bit big for a smoothie bottle - mini mini version to come soon).  I have made my first pattern which I am very pleased about.  It took ages for me to have the confidence to make anything without having a pattern to follow and here I am writing my own.  Click on the picture to the left download the pattern for yourself

  1. You have no idea how happy you've made me with this mini fez! I'm a bit of a sad-o and just made a sock monkey to fill up my time and had a major hankering for a mini fez to fit his little striped head. This is just the job. Thanks a million for completing my Christmas!
