Peanut to pepper: these funny crocheted hats are a hit on Instagram
Instagram is flooded with great accounts: from travel bloggers to pages full of outfit inspiration, there is something for everyone. But an artist from Melbourne, Australia, takes a different approach. Phil Ferguson gets a lot of attention with the help of his crocheted artworks.
It all started as a hobby for the 26-year-old. “I started my Instagram account five years ago,” he tells Metro UK. “I had the idea to crochet hats in the form of food and to act with that, I had just moved from Melbourne to Perth at that time, so there were not many people there yet.”
I got the idea that if I put photos of my hats on Instagram, I would make new friends in the new city.”
Making the hats is an easy task for Phil. He already made headwear in the shape of a giant peanut nut, a strawberry, a sausag, and a rather impressive pretzel.
“Sometimes I making the outfits goes really fast and sometimes it takes much longer than I expected,” says Phil. His striking creations already caught the attention of 130,000 followers on Instagram.
