Rooty!

DSC_0227

Rooty!

A little silly, a little hippie-ish, this hat is named after our favorite local eco-café (Back to the Roots) where it was photographed and partially inspired. A simple hat with a quirky brim and some subtle texture throughout- work in two similar colorways for a blend-y effect or solid/with contrasting colors for something more bold. Here it's shown in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino (the worsted weight one) in Earl Gray and Filigree. (You can peek at the solid-colored prototype here. )

Bonus points if you can say the name without mentally adding “-tooty fresh and fruity” (I can’t.)

  1. Don't need to add the 'tooty...' at the end. But root has a different colloquial meaning outside the USA. So I cannot help but call it "rootable," instead of "rooty."

  2. I did add the" tooty fresh and fruity" in my head even without you pointing it out. Where does that saying even come from?

    1. I think it's something you can order at IHOP... though I don't remember the last time I was at an IHOP, so that's still weird.

  6. I must be the only person on earth who has no association with Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity. That's a thing? But I'm also the bum who totally skated over your birthday without even a phone call or text message, so now there's really egg on my face. About the hat -- I am suddenly drawn to those bonnet-y type things, it's adorable and you're hired!

    1. It just means you never eat at IHOP, which is probably a good thing.

      I suppose will forgive you, as there is a critter stealing your brainsmarts, and since I can never remember the exact date of your birthday either. I just send you a card sometime in October and call it good ;-)

  7. I really dig this hat! Everything about it is great.
    FYI: I know have "tutti frutti" stuck in my head.

  10. The picture of you and all the ladies on the sofa has a little cowl with pom poms sitting on the corner. Do you have this pattern?
