Inebriated Bunny Hat

How did your Lady of the Linoleum spend her New Year's Eve?

Crocheting...oh, and drinking. The combination of the two is directly responsible for the creation of these hats...

In nearly natural and modeled by the hubster...



In a fuzzy pimped out blue/purple colorway...



You'll be happy to learn that I was not so, well, trashed, that I neglected to document the pattern.

So folks, here's the first freebie of 2007! Happy New Year and enjoy!

Your hubby is a cutie.. and MUCH more tolerant than mine would ever be.

The hat made me think of the movie "Harvey".. now I want to see it again.. while wearing a IBH.

I had a very good comment yesterday and it just wouldn't go through. So bear with me as I try to remember a little of what I said.

Yes that actually does look like an inebriated bunny. How funny.
Everything that you have created this past year was awesome. And I am so looking forward to all the things you will do this year. I am just sitting back waiting for the waves of amazement to start rolling in.
:)

Yeah, not exactly, but it'll do.

He's gotta look a little more excited like say, Roger Rabbit perhaps? : )

Just cracked open a bottle of vino so I thought that making this would be appropriate... Wish me luck! =)
PS: If you can't read this, it means the wine has already taken effect and I can't type in the captcha... ;D

I want to make a donkey hat.. you're so creative, I thought I'd ask you here. Do you think it's possible that I could use your pattern (up until the ears, I'd have to make them a bit shorter and more shaped like a donkey ear) and insert pipecleaners or something to make the ears more stiff so they'd stand up? Any suggestions? My husband's nickname is "Donkey," so I thought I'd dress him up like one haha. I don't have a lot of crochet experience, so any suggestions on how to accomplish my goal would help :D
