Chacun son chapeau: each to their own hat (style)
Soft, sewn hats (many using reclaimed material), knit hats, and reversible fabric headbands for adults and children.
Finding your band size
If you’re unsure of your band size, there are a couple of easy ways to find it. The easiest way is with a measuring tape. Facing a mirror, place the tape at the back of your head and bring it around to meet over your eyebrows (about two finger’s widths above). Pull it snug, but not tight, and note where the end marks the longer piece. 21 inches = Small, 22 inches = Medium, 23 inches = Large. (Note: other places may have other sizing guidelines, or more granular breakdowns; these are mine.)
If you do not have a measuring tape, you can use string, and measure the length of string against a ruler or yardstick, following the same instructions as above. Start out with about 26 inches of string that does not stretch for ease of measuring. (If you use something stretchy, it could alter your measurement.)
Below is a sample of some of the pieces I’ve made for others. (For hats that are available for purchase, see the links above.) If you see somethings here, or on the other pages that aren’t quite what you’re looking for – maybe it’s the wrong color or size – I might be able to make something for you depending on my current schedule.
