knitspiration: artist phil ferguson
following the release of my turkey hat pattern and with thanksgiving only a week away, what better time than now to highlight an artist who crochets incredible, oversized hats in the shape of different foods?
if you haven't already heard of phil ferguson and/or aren't following him on instagram, he began crocheting whimsical food-themed hats in 2014 and has been killing the game ever since.
one of my favorite creative outlets is to knit in 3D, to play with form and shape and try to create the designs i see in my head. when i discovered Phil's work, i was so inspired by his obvious mastery of the art of crochet and his ability to render his ideas into a perfect blend of playful and realistic. literal goals!
