For some reason, my sister Chelly is pretty obsessed with a large-mouthed, fuzzy brown square.
Also known as Domo.
Domo means “Thank You” / “I’m Sorry” / “Excuse Me” / etc.*
And while she’s not so great as a study buddy, she is my favorite model and hat-creation guinea pig.
I love Domo’s bright red mouth – such a fun pop of color! I was less impressed by the teeth, which didn’t get as pointy as I had hoped. Next time I’ll try using a thinner yarn too, so the teeth don’t look as bumpy.
My favorite part of the hat are the braids – I love how the red, white, and chocolate brown look together. Then again, our wedding colors were red, white, and black, so it’s possible that I’m a little biased.
Chelly told me that none of her classmates believed that I made the hat for her. I was pretty surprised by it, since the only other crocheted Domo hats I’ve seen are all on Etsy (which is where I got the idea from in the first place).
By the time the hat was done, I could see why Chelly’s so infatuated with Domo. His strangely-cute-and-toothy grin has a way of growing on you.
