These are the very first sketches I did for a series of animal hat patterns, that I planned to sell on Ravelry. They represent a stream of consciousness – the good, the bad and the boring. It is easy to forget that the idea is to inspire people to knit and wear these hats. What market was I aiming for? However, I can now see potential in some of these designs – potential I couldn't see at the time. Some of these sketches were to appear in my proposal for Animal hats to knit.
