Hannah Hat

This project presented some challenges!  The biggest: I don’t have a four year-old on hand to measure.  I looked up the average size of a child’s head – thanks, internet!  Also, I wasn’t exactly sure where to put the earflaps at first.  I tried eyeballing the proportions while looking at kids on the subway… and then I realized I looked like a total weirdo staring at little kids.  Thankfully I work at a lovely elementary school, and asked a few parents after school one day if I could measure their kid’s heads.  To take this photo, I used an upside-down glass vase, with a felted wool bowl on top for extra padding.  Here’s a pdf link to the pattern: Hannah Hat
