I grew up watching re-runs of the Addams Family in black and white. We also watched the movie with Christina Ricci as a kid. So, when the new series came out, I had to watch it. The line “Wednesday is allergic to color” stuck with me.
I needed a new cork ornament for this year. Thus, this little item was created. You know she doesn’t like Christmas or color, so the black and white Santa Hat popped into my head.
This is a super-fast project to whip up and a great way to use up those corks you have been saving.
This pattern isn’t officially tested, though I have followed it 5 times to make an army of Wednesdays. If you make it, please use #drunkenauntwendy so I can see your work.

Note: Hats are worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.
Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.
The bracketed number  is the number of stitches at the end of each row.
I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Paint cork black. Leave top of cork unpainted for the face.
Once the paint is dry. Insert screw hook in the top of the cork.
Using Sharpie find an unmarked spot on the cork and draw two ovals to act as the eyes. You can also add eyelashes.
Using white paint make two upside down triangles at edge of black, with the center matching the center of the eyes.
