Pattern description from Stitch ‘n Bitch: “These hats are the bastard children of the Lil’ Devil Baby Hat that I featured on my Web site, Kittyville is an online hodgepodge that I started in 1997 to present my somewhat off-center interests to the rest of the world. I love getting feedback and questions from faraway places, and I got so many requests for an adult version of the Lil’ Devil Baby Hat that I adapted it to fit grown-ups. It naturally evolved into the Kitty hat, which is the official headgear for Kittyville. i like to imagine people wearing it to surf my site, like a kid putting on a Captain Video helmet to watch his favorite show. You can omit the ears or horns and add your own kind of ornamentation: pom-poms, tassels, ponytails. Or just go minimal - with this basic hat shape, the possibilities are endless!”
