From fine knits to super chunky knitted hats, you can make one for every outfit.

When you look in the stores and see knitted hats for sale, they are often poor quality and made with acrylic yarns….so making your own is a much better idea!

Choosing your own yummy yarns and making a hat for yourself is really satisfying and sure to bring compliments from friends and family.

I’m going to do a mini collection, as I have other accessories to add. So I will release maybe at the beginning of September. It will be posted on my social media though when they are ready 🙂
