Soft shades of blue, pink, purple and teal are accented with snowy white in this fun and functional horned ear flap hat. A pair of perky little padded horns, 7.5cm/3” in length, sprout from the upper forehead area, above a beautifully snuggly, broad band of blue feathers yarn, which features a deep ‘widow’s peak’- a V shape designed to draw attention to the wearer’s eyes and exclude drafts.
A long, ovoided tail of 127cm/50”- ideal for wrapping around the wearer’s neck to add warmth- ends in a padded, arrow-head-shaped cushion, great for use when travelling or for those quick on-the-go power naps.
Tapestry crochet techniques are used throughout, and are especially bold in the crown section, with its zigzag and bobble design. The entire crown is also edged in rose pink, designer ‘Medley’ yarn; extra-fuzzy with its eyelash-and-puffball ply.
Hand twisted ear flap ties of approx. 20cm/8” boast luxuriantly thick, blue feathers yarn tassels of 15cm/6”.
The Pastel Imp ear flap hat is medium in size, best suited to snuggle around and enliven a noggin of around 57cm/22.5”.
This hat is a unique, individual piece of wearable Art headgear, designed and crocheted by myself. No patterns were harmed, or even used in its making.
The Pastel Imp is made from an eclectic collection of natural and synthetic fibres. Please handwash and rinse it in lukewarm water, then roll in a towel to gently squeeze out excess moisture, and dry flat. Do not machine wash or tumble dry.
I use Australia Post and usually send out parcels within 24 hours, except on weekends, because the local post office is closed Saturday and Sunday. Shipping to the US/UK should take about a week to ten days, but unfortunately shipping delays can happen sometimes. If that’s the case, let me know and I can follow up the parcel’s progress from this end and keep buyers informed.
At present I am sending parcels within Australia by Express post to make sure they arrive as soon as possible. Buyers will have a tracking number so they can follow their parcel’s progress, so long as the postal service in their country allows it. Tracking numbers will be sent as soon as I post the parcel.
