Washboard Bill Wonder Emporium is dedicated to making quality, design conscious, original items. Mostly hats. Each hat is handcrafted by Washboard Bill with care, creativity, and an interest in making sure you can wear, wash, play, and enjoy each hat, for years to come. Bill has been quoted as saying "My hats were made to last. You'll be leaving them to your grand-kids in your will, along with all your other precious and most beloved items." There are no patterns for any of Bills hats. They are all made from scratch. Original designs. This means you won't find another hat like Washboard Bills anywhere. Which means you are really buying, owning and wearing a couture item-without the couture price. This alone makes you hip.

The Bobble scarf OR The Maggie scarf

There's something super fun about saying b o b b l e scarf. It sounds like a foreign language. And the scarf it's self, feels fun. It has oodles to do with the stitch and mostly to do with the yarn. There is over a pound of yarn in this scarf and almost 642 yd / 587 m, hence the almost 11 feet specs on this bad boy. It's made with a chunky yarn so it should in theory crochet up fairly quickly; oh not so Billigans. haha It took Bill 2 days to make this softy wonder scarf. It's a Washboard Bill Wonder Emporium original (as usual) and Apple has duly named it the Maggie scarf. After one of our nieces, she a pretty cool chick and has an amazing sense of fashion. This is one of those scarves that should be pranced around in New York city. You can totally see it right? :)

And for you crocheters or would be crocheters, here are instructions on how to do the bobble stitch from Bill's friend Mikey.
