November 27th, 2020
I am currently running this small biz on my own. I create the designs, write the pattern and physically knit each piece on my own. That’s on top of my other full time job…you know, the one that helps me pay my mortgage! I handle orders for physical pieces as pre-order events so I can manage the number of items I can physically make before my fingers cramp!
Yes! If hat orders are popular enough for me to bring on some help I would love to do that!
Color choices are limited in the Nov 27th pre-order to teal, black, and navy. This is in an effort to get orders out in time for the holidays. Future pre-order events will have a broader color range! I’m even considering offering special colors just for my newsletter peeps!
I can make hats sized for Toddlers, Children, and Adults.
Toddler size: Unstretched 13.25 in/32.5 cm, Stretched 18 in/45 cm
Child size: Unstretched 16.5 in/41.5 cm, Stretched 21 in/52.5 cm
Adult size: Unstretched 19.75 in/49cm, Stretched 24 in/60cm
Right ear CI, left ear CI, bilateral CI, no CI
Yes!! I got you! Order one with the CI option you need and another with no CI option.
I designed this hat to work with the CIs with a separate sound processor earpiece and transmitter. I have gotten feedback that the opening also works for the single sound processor types as well!
CI types with an earpiece sit inside a pocket. There is a removable loop that can fit over the front of the earpiece. There is also an option for a small safety pin or lobster clasp that can attach to the cord to add extra security.
I can make a hat in a few hours. If I could do nothing but knit all the time I could crank out lots of hats. I’m juggling my full time job on top of this amazing gig!
Oh yes! I believe anything that can be worn by a child should be washable!! Pop them in a lingerie bag and wash in the washing machine on Gentle. Or wash by hand in the sink. Always lay flat to dry!
I use acrylic yarn. Acrylic yarn eliminates any issues with wool allergies. Often acrylic is more washable and forgiving than wool yarn. But don’t worry about quality! I only use the softest yarn for my hats. My rule is that if I can rub the yarn against my cheek and I like how it feels, it makes the cut. If it’s scratchy, it’s rejected.
Get on that newsletter, friends!!
