How to measure head size.

19 & 1/2 - 21 & 1/2 = Small
22 - 23 = Medium

23 & 1/2 - 24 & 1/2 = Large

    Head sizes vary from pin-head (The Hat Lady) to pumpkin head (you know who you are).  The size of the hat is indicated in the description of each hat.  It is important to order the correct size.

      "Hats with Attitude" can be made to fit any head size.  If you have an outlier head, you might want to consider having a hat custom made.

SMALL SIZED HATS
SIZE SMALL, MULTICOLORED FEDORA
The body of the hat is knitted in color sections.  The brim in blue, the crown in pink, green and black stripes.  The top of the crown is moss green.  The crown is high and can be worn either atop the head or pulled down.  The sides of the brim are tacked to the sides of the crown creating a Western look.  If you prefer to wear a floppy brim, simple snip through the stitches used to tack the brim down.  
Size Small Light Blue Bob-Hat with Blue Glass Beads
The body of the hat is knitted in powder blue.  Royal blue glass beads are knitted into the bottom of the brim.  The brim, although fitted bob-hat style has a slight flair.  
Size small lime green bob-hat with blue glass beads.
The main body of the hat is knitted in lime green.  The bottom of the brim is trimmed in subtle rows of blue, green and pink. Blue glass beads are knitted into the piece near the botton of the brim.  This combination of color near the face is sure to bring out the blue or green of your eyes. (You know who you are.)
Size Small Gold and Rust Rolled Brim
This small sized hat has a shallow crown.  When the brim is unrolled, it creates a sweet cloche.  Two shades of rust and a touch of purple is knitted along the bottom edge of the brim and around the bottom of the crown.  A subtle peak is knitted intarsia style along the bottom of the crown.  
SMALL BLUE ARGYLE
This bob-hat is knitted intarsia style.  The body of the hat is blue and the argyle pattern is worked in gold and rust.  
SMALL PINK CLOCHE WITH SAMOYED DOG TRIM 
The body of the hat is knitted in a soft brick-red yarn.  It is a cloche with a full, floppy brim.  The edge of the brim is trimmed in a double layer of hand spun Samoyed dog fiber.  The fiber is unusually soft and odorless.  
SMALL TRICORN HAT FOR PILLAGING 
Size Small:  The hat is knitted in threatening black, yet inexplicably embellished with innocent pink.  The brim of a tricorn hat has three corners.  Think pirate.  Think the feminine match of Johnny Depp.  
SMALL BLACK BOB-HAT WITH FLOWER
Size Small.  Bob-hats are meant to reach below the ears for warmth in the winter.  This one is knitted in black and trimmed in white/grey/black yarn.  
MEDIUM SIZED HATS
SIZE MEDIUM, BROWN FEDORA WITH METALLIC TRIM. 
The shade of brown has subtle grey overtones.  It is a deep fedora crown that can be worn either on top of the head or pulled down for warmth.  The brim is generous and easily flipped to be worn either rolled up or extended down.  The trim around the edge of the brim is crocheted with brown silk with copper metal bling.  
MEDIUM DALE EVANS COWBOY HAT
The main body is black, with grey bands knitted in.  There is silver  crocheted along the edge of the brim. The feathers are suspended from a silver  band that rounds around the bottom of the crown.  Oh yes,  did I mention?  When a woman wears a cowboy hat her legs automatically become two inches longer. 


MEDIUM PURPLE ROLLED BRIM WITH SILK LACE
    This rolled brim is embellished at the edge of the brim and around the base of the crown with silk crocheted lace.  It has a fedora crown.  The rolled brim can be worn up or down.  Or perhaps one side up and the other down for a rakish look.  
MEDIUM BLACK BOB-HAT WITH PURPLE GLASS BEADS
    The body of the hat is knitted with black.  Purple glass beads are knitted into the bottom edge of the crown.  Colors edging the face include burgundy red, green and purple.  
LARGE SIZED HATS

The body of the bob- hat is knitted in navy blue.  Lighter blue beads are knitted into the bottom of the brim. 
SIZE LARGE, BLACK CLOCHE WITH BLUE/PURPLE TRIM

SIZE LARGE, RUST CLOCHE WITH RUST FLOWER
The body of the hat is knitted in an orange/rust color with blue guard hair.  The bottom is double brimmed and trimmed in shades of darker rust.  A matching crocheted flower is tacked onto the side of the hat. 
Size Large,  Blue Rolled Brim with Blue Wooden Beads
The body of the piece is knitted in denim blue, with black guard hair.  The bottom of the brim is trimmed in dark blue.There is a band of stripes knitted around the crown which include black, blue and burgundy.  Denim colored wooden beads are knitted into the band.  The crown is shallow and wide, leaving room for a good head of hair. The floppy brim can easily be worn now, cloche style. 
LARGE PINK CLOCHE WITH PINK FLOWER
The body is knitted in a soft pink.. The bottom of the brim is double edged with matching flower.  The trim yarn is crocheted with alpaca yarn in shades of pink, lavender and mauve. 
LARGE BLACK CLOCHE WITH PINK FLOWER
This hat is knitted in basic black.  The bottom of the brim is embellished with two layers of pink.  The flower is crocheted out of matching yarn.  The hat is deep enough to comfortably cover a dog-walker's ears on a winter day.  
LARGE PURPLE CLOCHE WITH BLACK STRIPE AND BLACK DOUBLE EDGED TRIM
The main body of the hat is knitted in purple with two embedded black stripes. The bottom of the brim is double edged and trimmed in black alpaca yarn.
LARGE BLUE CLOCHE WITH SILK BEADED TRIM
The main body of the hat is knitted in blue.  The asymmetrical trim and flower is crocheted with silk yarn that has been strung with small clear glass beads. 
LARGE BEIGE ROLLED BRIM WITH BLACK FLOWER
The main body of the hat is knitted in beige yarn that has flecks of black.  Black stripes are knitted into the piece both around the bottom of the crown and the edge of the brim. A  crochetted black silk and alpaca flower is attached to the side. 
LARGE PURPLE PORK PIE HAT WITH BLACK STRIPE
The body of the hat is knitted in purple.  A black band is knitted into the flat brim.  Two buttons are sewn onto the side.  It has a circular pork pie crown. (Think Popeye from the French Connection.  Think Heisenberg from Breaking Bad.). The crown is deep and the hat can be worn either pulled down or setting atop. 
LARGE PURPLE CLOCHE WITH ROLLED BRIM
The hat is knitted in purple with a floppy rolled brim that can be worn either rolled up or let down, cloche style.  The bottom of the brim is edged in loopy lavender yarn. 
LARGE BLACK CLOCHE WITH FUNKY PINK TRIM
The body of the hat is knitted in black.  The brim is double edged, both are embellished with hot pink yarn that changes texture throughout. 
LARGE BEIGE CLOCHE WITH BLACK BEADS
The body of the hat is knitted with beige yarn that has black flecks in it.  The bottom of the brim has burgundy red glass beads knitted in. A black stripe is knitting on the very bottom of the hat, below the beads.  This hat's name is Fanny.
Fanny is a bell shaped hat, known for the flair of her bottom - full fine and round.  She swings it like a ringing bell.

HEADS UP!!

These are the heads that I make to display my hats.  They are getting ready for the Anchorage Botanical Garden Plant Show on Saturday, May 25th.  Their fresh glue and Mod Podge are drying.  Today's backdrop for the photoshoot is the greenhouse.  Although there is now two inches of snow in the garden these "starts" are ready for action.  Unfortunatly, they will have to wait three weeks past normal planting time to sink their roots into Lovely Downtown Chugiak dirt.  The photos of the new hats are taken in the greenhouse.

Hats across the seasons in Lovely Downtown Chugiak, Alaska.
Basic Cable Pattern includes cowl, boot cuff, hat and mitt.  Cost = $5.00 + $1.00 mailing.
