We’ll come straight out with it. We’ve done this blog post before and, when the Big Knit hats start appearing on the shelves in February, we’ll almost certainly do it again. We’re not sorry. It’s animals in Big Knit hats. We’ll never be sorry.
So here we go again. Five of our favourite animals in Big Knit hats. Because why not?
Like a reflection caught by Cartier-Bresson, Yvonne’s tortoise Harry gazes into the eyes of her woollen twin. What thoughts are going through her head? Is it love? Confusion? A brief moment of wondering where the next lettuce leaf will come from? Sadly, we’ll never know. Unless our tortoise mind-reading machine works. We’ll know then. Fingers crossed.
Nicole's pug, Archie, sitting bolt upright, his face looks almost surprised at the excellent framing of the picture. The hat sits in the foreground, Archie in the back, and yet the two fit together perfectly like Lego bricks meeting for the first time.
Where others are more than happy to dress their animals in regular Big Knit hats, Fiona has decked hers out in one of our larger hats produced by Oliver Bonas. He turns towards the camera, almost daring you to ask him why he's wearing a hat. You know the answer already. It’s because he looks fabulous.
We’re fairly sure Amy didn't send us a picture of a real dog but who cares? Just look at it. Small, cute, its glassy eyes managing to see something in you that’s usually reserved for only your closest loved ones. You find yourself wanting to tell it your secrets, to reveal the person you really are underneath all this modern-day artifice. A truly beautiful moment.
Carrot in shot, check. Ears going in different directions, check. Big Knit hat somehow staying on, check. We have nothing more to say. Congratulations to @harrri, it’s the holy trinity of rabbit Big Knit pictures.
So there we have it. Five more of our favourite animals in Big Knit hats. We'll see you again in February...
