Happy Birthday Chicken Boys!

Same hat, different cakeMy son (on the right) and his cousin were born 5 days apart. I made each of them an Elf Hat for their tiny little newborn heads. Now they are celebrating their first birthday, and again I made them matching hats. We have to make them wear these things while they’re young and can’t say “no” or “hell no” or “mom, no way, I’ll look like a dork!!”

My hats were inspired by this pattern, though my decreases at the top are different (for that distinctive “chicken butt” shape). I crocheted the drumsticks because that was so much easier than knitting. The hats are some inexpensive cotton from JoAnns, because that’s the yarn I could find in this lovely “plucked poultry carcass” colorway.

    This is the best picture! I love them in their chicken butt hats. They are wonderful. I think you may have a problem though… how are you going to out do these hats? Oh well you have a year, I know you will think of something hilarious. 🙂

    I’d like to know why a chicken hat… but noooo, don’t worry. They look so cute!

    But I’m afraid one day they’ll definitively rebel!!
