This wee red hat is perfect for a small head! The sweet little cables were knit with such care out of the softest, smoothest yarn. The hat is double brimmed and knit in such a way that the pattern creates a natural crease to keep the brim always folded up in place; you'll never have to worry about it slipping down over baby's eyes.
When I removed the pom pom for washing, I added a button and bow attachment to the inside of the hat when I replaced it, so that you can easily remove it for washing in future by untying the bow, or if you'd prefer not to use it (see last photo).
Measurements: about 12" in circumference at the brim, and 6.5" tall from crown to brim at longest point.
About our Vintage Knits:
We love giving woolens and handmade knit and crochet items a new home! It's a great way to honor the work of these makers, a sustainable way to shop, and it feels true to who we are.
We call this section "vintage knits" in that we don't generally know the age or provenance of these items, or the yarn that made them. Occasionally our shop's knit samples also make it in here!
We carefully select only the items that speak to us, and ensure they are in good condition. We check each one for minor repairs, and wash small items (hats, mittens, cowls) so that they'll be ready to wear or gift once you receive them.
All items are sold as-is; woolens and handmade items are perfectly imperfect, and we don't consider these defects, just the nature of a handmade wardrobe! We make every effort to include clear photos, measurements and descriptions; please review carefully and message us with any questions, as we cannot accept returns from our Vintage Knits category. We want you to love and enjoy each item here!
Hand wash all wool and handmade knit and crochet items in cool water with a mild soap like Soak. Wool is naturally antimicrobial, and hand knits last longer with less fuss and washing - just wear them and enjoy!
