Blue Footed Booby Hat

The hat is knit from the brim up. The earflaps are picked up from the brim and knitted in one piece all the way down to the feet. The beak is attached separately.

From July 1st to September 8th 2011, all profits from the Blue Footed Booby Hat pattern went towards Kenna's fundraising efforts for her walk in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For The Cure on behalf of her Mum. She walked as a Blue Footed Booby (complete with blue shoes!)
