As I’ve previously noted, trying to help my 2.75-year-old wrap his brain around the concept of Halloween costumes was a fun challenge this year. But, at one point, he finally suggested “a yellow cat,” and I enthusiastically seized upon this suggestion (not least because I got to overdye last year’s costume)!
I also decided to knit yet another beloved Foxy hat in yellow — Malabrigo in Cadmium, for the record — and style it as a kitty face instead of a foxy face, which worked out well both for costume purposes and for bulk-up-the-arsenal-of-winter-knits purposes. He is amped.
“Now, Theo,” I coached him as we took his costume out on its first spin, “when somebody asks what you’re dressed as, what do you say?”
Just about right.
