After making my loom knit bows the other day, I started thinking about a project where I could incorporate them.  I remembered that the Cat in The Hat always wears a bow tie.  I think Dr. Seuss is a special memory for most kids so I thought it would be fun to loom knit a hat with that theme. Originally I planned on putting the bow under his chin in the front but then realized that although it would look cute in a picture, it probably wouldn't be fun to wear.  I decided to add it to the back of the hat.  I think it fits there perfectly.  I have to admit that my Cat in The Hat's face looks a little naughty so if you want a happier version just widen his mouth and bring up the sides of his mouth higher.  This hat is pretty stretchy so I think it would fit kids to adult.  I would just shorten it for a child unless it's going to be used as a costume.  We spend every Halloween with my young nephews so I'm thinking about wearing it next year as the start to my Halloween costume!
