    Crocheting may bring to mind mothball-smelling grannies, but Melbourne-based artist Phil Ferguson has literally spun the pastime into a hipster hobby with his crocheted food emoji hats.

    Ferguson, better known as Chiliphilly, is a crochet connoisseur with 20k-plus Instagram followers who’s proving that cool kids can partake in yarn-based activities, too. He learned how to create the wonderful wool headpieces from YouTube tutorials, eventually becoming so good that he could make each hat in about two caffeine-induced days—this guy is super-productive when he’s in the zone. The hat designs are comprised of our favorite emojis, including the eggplant (a timeless classic), the pizza slice (duh), and a juicy watermelon that is so Coachella, we just can’t even.

    Chiliphilly’s creations are made for the chillest of chill people—you know, the type to pair a plush hamburger bag with a crocheted hamburger hat. Having two burgers in one outfit? That meat is rare. Just imagine wearing a crochet banana hat while eating a banana. It’s completely bananas—and meta— and we love it.
