Calcifer Hat!

Here's the Calcifer Hat I made for my craft swap partner, DaphadillyArt's daughter!

Calcifer is a character from the Miyazaki movie "Howl's Moving Castle"

He's a fun little fireplace fire (voiced by Billy Crystal) and a major plot point.
Keep your eye on him, he's feisty!

The yarn used was 3 strands of worsted weight from my stash in yellow, red, and orange.
The pattern was The Longford Hat on
It calls for Bulky, but I wanted to get a flame flickery look so 3 worsted knit together did the trick.

Calcifer's Eyes are 2 circles of white felt haphazardly stitched on with 
white embroidery thread. I needed to do that stitching loosely to 
accommodate for stretching of the hat when worn. 

Buttons for the pupils sewn on a bit wonky...
Because lets face it, Calcifer is indeed
