This is certainly a very colorful hat. Very cute and totally different from anything I have seen lately. I dont think it would be a very good hat to wear in a family portrait, but it would be a fun hat for everyone to wear to a family reunion or a family or company picnic. The pompoms add to the quirky look.

My kids loved watching Punky Brewster and I even have the doll in my collection. This quirky hat certainly does reflect the philosophy of her character. I appreciate that there is such a wide range of sizes included with the pattern. The lack of photos doesnt seem to be a problem as the pattern is so simple. Hardest part are the poms, and those are a cinch with a pompon maker.

This is such a fun design, and it comes in all sizes, too! What a wonderful Christmas gift for a entire familymake some smaller ones for the pets, too! This is a great scrap buster, too, since you dont need full skeins to complete the project. Just make sure you have enough yarn for those great fluffy pompons! You can make them multicolored, or solid to match one of the colored bands.
