Mad Hatter Hat Challenge was a great adventure…
Alice Hooks in Wonderland represented by a Top Hat. Mikey from The Crochet Crowd along with sponsor’s Creativ Festival & Red Heart with secondary prizes provided by James C. Brett & Schachenmayr Yarns came together for this great Challenge.
Contestants crocheted the Top Hat, per given instructions, and then incorporate the theme Alice In Wonderland by embellishing the hats. There was an overwhelming 341 submissions of these hats and was I in total awe at the creativity that was represented.
Free Top Hat Crochet Pattern. Note that Alice in Wonderland themed hats are crocheters free choice. This pattern is just for the basic hat that the crocheters used.

The best 5 top hats were awarded $500 Prize Packages and the next 10 runners up were awarded $50 Yarn samplers.
Mikey’s Comment: Remember, that being in person and examining the hats is a different perspective than just viewing a photograph online. Many guests examined the hats by reviewing all sides when casting their votes.
The rest of the hats were available for auction and sold during the Creativ Festival and the money goes toward The New Crochet Crowd Scholarship Program to provide financial assistance in the form of Academic Awards for ‘creative based’ post secondary students.
I made a board on my Pinterest to show all the great work that was done. You will be amazed! View the entire Pinterest gallery.
The winners submission pics are marked to show the 15 chosen. Enjoy!
