Handmade Animal Crochet Hat Review

A few weeks back, I was kindly asked by Minnies Macaroon to review one of their handmade crochet hats on my Scarlett!

I had an email confirming they had sent it on Wednesday, and yesterday (Friday), Scarlett's parcel arrived in the cutest pink packaging!

We were delighted to receive the panda design (check out their website for other design options, including a kitten, pig, tiger, monkey, mouse etc), and immediatly placed it on Scarlett's head to check for size.....

We asked for a small (3 months to 18 months) for our 12-month old Scarlett....and a lovely fit with a few months growing room.

The hat isn't lined, but the wool used is strong & thick. And the design is gorgeous and fun - perfect for children. This is a gorgeous statement piece for chilly weather!

Their website says these hats are handmade (big thumbs up) from soft Icelandic wool! Fabulous. And only £11 each.

As foxes are a big inspiration for 2013, I would love to see a fox design for Autumn/Winter fingers are crossed.

Please do check out their website
