Care instructions

- Hand wash cold in gentle detergent, reshape and air dry flat.
- Do not put in washing machine or dryer, as this will cause your wool item to felt.
- Remove pom pom before washing for best results (pom pom can be removed by untying from inside).
- Fluff pom pom to refresh by gently brushing with comb or cool heat from a hair dryer.

All wool will stretch over time. If you feel your hat has gotten too stretched out, follow the instructions above to wash it, then reshape it to desired shape, and allow to dry. This should reshape it to its original size.

Sizing details

Detailed measurements of each item are provided in each listing description. Hats are made with chunky merino wool or wool. Hats will be fitted on medium/larger heads with taller foreheads, or slouchy/tall on smaller/medium heads with short foreheads.

If you have any questions about sizing or fit, feel free to send me a message! All listings include a video of the fit on my own head (which is larger, with a tall forehead).

All wool will stretch over time. If your hat feels small (especially at the brim) when it arrives, know that it will stretch over time (after a few wears) and mold to your head shape.

Beautiful pattern , easy to follow

Easy and fun pattern! I’ve made several hats so far!

Beautiful texture and easy and quick to knit up. Great all-around fit.

Such a beautiful design and perfectly written. This was my first time ever doing a right twist/left twist. I had no idea what to do and I followed the link provided in the pattern and was able to fully understand the technique. Highly recommend this pattern. Thanks!
