The Awkward Bunch

Last month I did a trade with my photographer friend Margaret: knitwear for pictures. She wanted matching hats for her family to wear in their Holiday Card photos. 

Aren't they awesome?! When I saw this picture I just started laughing. Talk about spreading holiday cheer! For Margaret's hat I used deer with little antlers hat by Tiny Owl Knits. The doggy snood was simply a round tube with ribbing at either end. I used the same ear and antler pattern. For the kitty snood, I did about a six inch ribbed cuff with just ears. 

I just love how precious her fur baby Marlin looks in his Christmas hat! 

Yarn: Knit Picks Full Circle Worsted (for the hat/ears), Knit Picks Palette (antlers), Crystal Palace Yarn Kid Merino (inner ear)
Needles: US 11
Began: November 30
Completed: December 8


  1. Awww- I don't think I could get my dog to put on a hat, much less sit still for long enough to take a picture of it!

  2. That dog in that snood is about the cutest thing I have ever seen, well done.

  3. That is so cute and SO hilarious! :)

  4. Oh that is funny! Cute and clever! Love how you two bartered.


I'd love to hear from you!
