I have always been a huge Muppet fan. I grew up watching Muppet movies and I just recently saw the newest one - I loved it! So when I heard about the movie release, I felt compelled to make some Muppet hats. I planned on making a couple of them, but I just couldn't stop - I ended up making 10. Here they are!
|Kermit - I actually made this one a few years ago, so he's not really up to par with most of them, but you get the idea|
|Miss Piggy - I used a wig I already owned and just made two little slits for the ears so the wig is removable. I wish I had enough room to add a nose so it would be a little more recognizable. Maybe I'll try again one day...|
|Fozzie Bear - I used a different stitch for the body of the hat to look like his fur. His hat is basically just a mini knit hat that I crocheted to the top.|
|Dr. Bunsen Honeydew - This one was really easy because I just had to crochet some ears and a nose onto a normal hat. I used old 3D movie glasses without lenses for the glasses.|
|Beaker - He's one of my favorites! He just has basic felt features and a pompom for the hair.|
|Statler - The nose was a little difficult, but I eventually got it. I used felt for the rest of the features, with a little bit of cotton stuffing underneath the eyebrows and hair so it sticks out a little more.|
|Waldorf - This one miiiight be my very favorite. I used cotton batting for the hair and mustache, felt for the eyes, and then knit the eyelids, nose, and ears.|
|Rowlf - This is one of my favorite Muppets - and the hat was really simple. Just felt features, and then a textured stitch for the ears.|
|Gonzo - My other favorite Muppet! Felt facial features, a knit nose, and a few extra strands of yarn at the top.|
|Animal - This is probably the most recognizable one and took the most hand-stitching, but all it took was a normal red hat and a bunch of felt features.|
**Update: since I am not selling these hats, please feel free to try making them yourselves. However, I cannot share patterns with you as I did not use any, and frankly I don't even know how to read them or write my own. Thanks for all the kind words about these!
