Things 2, 3 & 4

This one’s a three-fer.

In my stash I had a ball of super chunky, bright orange acrylic yarn that I bought last year on a whim. Because reasons.

The Netherlands celebrates Koninginnedag — Queen’s Day — every April 30. Except now we have a king, so it’s going to be Koningsdag on April 27. Same same. Either way, the occasion calls for lots of orange, with an emphasis on the bright, and good taste is completely optional. Possibly even discouraged.

These two facts — my bright orange yarn and the upcoming Koningsdag — found a beautiful life together in this tutorial. I used a 5mm hook and as the yarn was so thick, by following the child-size pattern I ended up with an adult-size crown. And because I had enough yarn, I made a second one. And then with the last bit of yarn I made a third — baby size. Or cat-size. Anyone want a cat-size crown?

We could be crown buddies! (Not really. I’m allergic to cats.)

    Finally, a source for cat crowns. Moxy has been asking for one for ages.

      If Moxy gets a crown, Moxy has to promise that I get photographic proof of the crown in use 🙂

    Moxy says “Meow.” I will translate. It means “Sure.”
