Zarah was looking after the Hyperbolic Crochet Reef at the Knitting and Stitching Show last year and to pass the time she thought she would attempt a cabled hat on circular needles. We think she could have done with bigger needles because it got too tight. 
Whatever happened, Zarah can't face it anymore. It's too small for most heads.
The brown wool is 100% pure so you could felt it.
Ellen, who is studying at the Royal college of art, has transformed this piece. Here is a copy of her letter.

'I turned the hat into a lobster -pot -thing with lobster and seaweed. No story behind it, really. The shape suggested the top of a birdcage (I'm a bit obsessed with birdcages) but deceided a lobster was more fun to make than a bird. It was done freeform, and very hurriedly, hence the uh, eccentric shape. Still, there's nothing more tedious than a perfect lobster pot is there?
Best wishes, Ellen.
