Boston Knitwear Company Outfits Duckling Statues With Unicorn Beanies

Locals and tourists love heading to the Boston Public Garden to see what the iconic Make Way for Duckling statues are wearing.

While they spend most of the year "in the raw" they have been known to don some adorable duck-sized outfits in honor of holidays and special events.

According to

"They've worn everything from Patriots jerseys to Irish green to pink political hats. They’ve even donned signs for a marriage proposal."

Last week, the fun Boston knitwear company, Sh*t That I Knit outfitted the web-footed family with their very own unicorn beanies!

When asked why she chose to create the blue and purple whimsical hats, Christina Fagan, the organization’s founder and chief knitting officer, said:

“After realizing unicorns were all the rage with kids these days, we thought it would be extra fun to knit mini unicorn hats for our duckling friends. There’s something so sweet about the ducklings in the park — they make passersby stop in their tracks, take photos, and have a laugh on their way to work. It’s been a silly tradition to decorate the ducklings every winter."

If you love the way the magical headwarmers look on the ducks, you can snag one for the kid in your life at Sh*t That I Knit!

"We actually just launched a unicorn children’s hat after learning that kids are obsessed with these mythical creatures and thought — why not bring our ducks in on the fun?”

This isn't the first time Fagan has dressed the ducklings. She also created classic knit hats and scarves for them a few years back.
What else can you find at Sh*t That I Knit? Stylish beanies for him, her and kids/babies, as well as knit wraps, ponchos, gloves, mittens and other accessories.
Best of all, the yarns are made from sustainably-sourced materials. The products are handmade by working moms in Peru, and the company even donate Knit Kits to help teach young cancer patients how to knit.
