Enter the “Cats in Hats” Caption Contest!

May 8th, 2015

Sara Thomas began selling her cat hats on Etsy years ago. She had no idea that her projects would become so popular! So popular in fact, that her cat hats, featured in a new book Cats in Hats (30 Knit and Crochet Hat Patterns for your Kitty), are a currently a viral sensation!

Thanks to Sara and our friends at Perseus Books, we’re hosting a giveaway of this adorable book — we even have two free patterns from the book to share with you: Feline Fox (Crochet) and Dinosaur Kitty (Knit).

As we browsed through the book, we were inspired to test out one of the hat patterns for ourselves, and our wonderful Brand Ambasador, Shira (@shiraroars) tested the hat out on her kitty, Psy. Thanks to Shira, we have this awesome photo of her cat in a mohawk hat and want YOU to come up with a creative caption for this image.

Just click on the link below to enter (you’ll be redirected to Facebook)!  Please note that captions in the comment section will not be considered. Contest ends May 24th, 2015.
