Whatever the hell the kids wear, I must spread the Pastafarian menu message and dress in the likeness of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I shall join the ranks of the 100% Durham wheat Hallowe’en disciples and create a knit version of this hat.

Behold. A use for Lion Brand yarn.

Edit: This keeps running through my head, so I might as well type this out now. First, it seems self-evident that if you need to generate a multiplicity of spaghetti strands, bulky is faster, but a single strand of bulky really doesn’t look like spaghetti. And it will be as limp as a wet noodle.

I-cord pasta is a possibility, but just to get pastomatic for a bit, strictly speaking I-cord doesn’t make spaghetti, it makes bucatini. Therefore, the use of I-cord should be left to the conscience of the individual churchgoer.

A ribbon yarn would be suitable for those of the linguine denomination. I was thinking of something along the lines of Katia Colorado, which is a superbulky, double I-cord sort of thing–kind of flat-ish but also tubular. A single strand (ends would need to be Fray-Checked) would be suitable as a spaghetti strand. Did I sell that stuff off already? Heck, I can’t remember.

    You need to get out a bit more.
    Though the hat is brilliant.

    At first I thought the hat was one of those space monsters from Sesame Street. I loved those guys.
