Leprechaun Top Hat!

I found this pattern on Paula's blog a while ago, and I couldn't wait to try it! ...I just had to find the right person to receive it and the reason to make it.

We had finished up our Christmas shopping, but I could tell my sweet supportive hubby wasn't entirely sold on my idea for his grandpa. I was looking around my bookmarks for ideas when I found Paula's pattern again.

Inspiration struck!

This man is VERY (I can't emphasize this enough) proud of his Irish heritage, his mother was also a crocheter so he enjoys that a few of us in the family crochet, and he has a wild goofy side. Put it all together, and here's his Leprechaun Top Hat!

What do you think?

I'll try to follow up with a picture of him wearing it if I can.

(Thanks, Paula, for sharing your pattern!! It was a blast to make it!)

  5. I really hope so--at least once! I could see him wearing it to staff meeting just to be crazy, but we'll see how willing he is to wear it in public any more than that. ;-)
