Mad Hatter Hat Challenge

Mad Hatter Hat Challenge was a great adventure…

Alice in Wonderland Fairytale represented by a Top Hat. Mikey from along with sponsor’s &  James C. Brett & Schachenmayr Yarns came together for this great Challenge.

Contestants would crochet the Top Hat per instructions and then incorporate the theme Alice In Wonderland to the hats. There was an overwhelming 341 submissions of these hats and was I in total awe at the creativity that was represented.

The best 5 top hats were awarded $500 Prize Packages and the next 10  were awarded $50 Yarn samplers.

The rest of the hats were auctioned off and/or sold during the Creative Festival and the money goes toward The New Crochet Crowd Scholarship Program to provide financial assistance in the form of Academic Awards for ‘creative based’ post secondary students.

I made a board on my Pinterest to show all the great work that was done. You will be amazed!!      The winners submission pics are marked to show the 15 chosen.   Enjoy!

Here is the pattern for the basis of the hat.. 

Below you will see my submission in to the challenge. I kinda amazed myself that it turned out decent.. LOL  The last time I tried to make an animal it looked like a Gremlin!  🙂
