I do not recommend washing or drying these hats in a machine. Although it is typically ok to do so with a blanket or afghan it probably wont do so well with these adorable character hats. Here’s what you should do:
Hand wash them in cold water (yes cold so colors don’t bleed) and lay them out on a flat surface to dry. Occasionally the ends where the work was tied off may come loose, this is normal, simply weave the ends back in making sure the “tail” is toward the inside of the hat.
*Just a side not: if your baby’s head is growing and out still wanna use that cute little hat, stretch it over a large pickle jar or something like that, it will stretch the fabric a little more and you’ll get a couple more months wear out of it.
**Another side note, the braids can be easily removed if you don’t want them anymore: simply cut just under the top knot and pull the rest out.

Baby heads come in many sizes. Here’s a sizing guide to help you:
Newborn — 13″
0-3 months — 14-15″
3-6 months — 15-17″
6-12 months — 16-19″
Toddler (1-3 yrs) — 18-20″
Child (4-10 yrs) — 19-22″
Teen/Adult – 22-24″
Most of my “INFANT” hats measure about 15-16 inches – they stretch pretty well (as crochet usually does). This should give you an idea of how the hats will fit. Of course if you need help just drop a line and I will be glad to assist you!
If you are special ordering a hat for someone with a big head (like my husband) you need to let me know those are typically about 26″ and will almost always be special order because I don’t usually make them that big for the fun of it.

If you would like, please send me your “problem” crochet patterns or stitches and i will make a tutorial to guide you through it! I will be adding new products soon and also some great gift ideas!
