customs hats? on 05/29/2013 19:25:19 MDT Print View

So you make custom ones then?

Any idea roughly what size head each size is good for?

Hi Philip,
Yes I make custom hats. My website is

Sizes are approximate as the hats are stretchy. Any particular one you are wondering about?
With custom hats the customer gives me a more exact size, as well as style, wool and colors.

Hi Christopher,
I can make a green one of your liking.
If you want #2, send me a pm. Either Paypal or a check, whatever works.

Kat's hats are all works of art, whether pre-made or custom! I hope to order a bunch for Christmas presents (don't worry, I'll order at least 4 months ahead).

Hi Kat,

I'm in a gear buying frenzy for a Wonderland hike which will be the first week of August. Just so I don't order one too late, what is the normal turn-around time once I order a hat off of your website? Looking for one and possibly two.

How much is it to knit another Owl hat? Not sure what my nephew's size is and not sure if at his age he'll wear it or throw it off (toddler who always kicks off his socks) so still pondering that.

Hi Ian,
The turnaround really varies...right now we are looking at a week and given the season I think I can keep that up. When I get a flush of orders, usually in colder weather, it can be as long as three weeks.
The Owl hats I can make any size; they take a while to make so usually I charge between 35 and 40, but they are very cute when worn by a child:

I love it! I'm hiking with my 12 y/o daughter and I've tried to keep her part of the decision making process for gear selection. I think she'll really enjoy perusing your website and picking out her custom hat.
