If you would like to read my thoughts on beanies go to the Giving the Beans to Beanies post.
This hat came about during the COVID-19 level 4 lockdown in 2020. My partner would have video calls with his workmates, just to chat & hang out. He wanted a funny hat to wear and requested that it had horns & the hat idea was born. I made the hat itself quite thick and sturdy so that it could stand up to the horns.
