Make a Hat!
Hats may be knitted or crocheted, adult or child sized. Hats made for infants will be collected and displayed, but not used in the performance. Any yarn may be used. Acrylic, cotton, bamboo and silk are perfect for those allergic to wool. Use your own pattern or one featured on this website. Be imaginative. Mix colors. Try out different stitches. Add bead or button embellishments. Have fun!
Don't know how to knit or crochet? Contact your local yarn store. They will have everything you need to get started.
