Bawk Bawk-Finished Chicken Butt Hat

Chicken Butt Hat

Here is an adorable photo of Erica Perl, author of the new children’s book “Chicken Butt!” sporting a very cool hat made my yours truly.

Erica contacted me a few months back and asked me to make a hat modeled on the one I made last year for the Boogedy, but before the plucking.

The body and drumsticks are white cotton, “Luna” by Cascade Yarns. The feet are also Luna, and they’re crocheted around a brown pipe cleaner for stability. The “feathers” are a polyester fluff yarn but I don’t remember the name.

This project was fun every step of the way (ok, the feet were a challenge) and elicited lots of laughs from people who watched me make it on the bus!

Congratulations Erica on a fun book, I’m so glad you trusted me to design your reading hat!

    This is a great hat! I sure wish we could she her reading the book at barnes and nobles wearing it. You are so very talented. Proud of you Sis.

    How clever of the author to commission one of these for herself. Now when I get that cookbook distributorship I shall have to think of one of knitted food for myself as well…

    That is so wonderful – those crazy chicken claws sticking out crack me up.

    I’d love to make one of these myself. Can you share the techniques you used for the feet? Also, for the modified top – did you knit a few extra rows before reducing, then reduce partly, knit several rows and finally reduce to the end? Sorry, I’m a fairly new knitter and don’t design for myself, but I can modify some.
