Phil Ferguson, 22, lives a seemingly normal life
, working at a burger joint in Melbourne, Australia. After a few months of living in a new city, he realized he needed a way to make some new friends. But instead of hitting up a bar or trying his hand at online dating, Ferguson opted to take up crocheting.
At first, this may sound like a craft your grandparents might pick up to pass the time. But Phil's enormous, handmade, food-themed hats are not your granny's knits. Phil's Instagram account, ChillyPhilly
, where he shares his outsized creations, now has more than 70,000 followers. So, you could say he accomplished his goal of connecting with more people — and then some.
While he doesn't currently sell his hats, we're hoping we'll be able to purchase a crocheted taco ruff at some point in the very near future. Ahead, some of our favorite Phil Ferguson headwear.
