I made the smaller size yesterday (which was for 12m – 2T) thinking that should be the right size for Zachery, wrong! He’s head circumference is that of a mid-percentile 3-year-old. The first attempt was way too small for him, so this morning, I made another one in the bigger size (3T-5T) and that fitted Zach fine, however, he’s not too keen on hats at the moment and just pulls them straight off. That hat is now Joshua’s and I made another one for Zach and attached velcroed straps to it – now there is no chance of him getting the hat off.
Because they were so easy to make, I wanted to make one for a little girl and I added a felt flower to it – this one I am giving to my friends’ 19 month old daughter.
