Make a “Where the Wild Things Are” Hat

In remembrance of the marvelous Mister Maurice Sendak, here is a tutorial from Jessyratfink for a “Where the Wild Things Are” hat (including the all-important whiskers.) Max’s growlishly wild hat can be made by following her 16 step directions….pattern included! As Max would say, “Let the wild rumpus start!”
