Hello knitting community.
First off, I am NOT knowledgeable at all on knitting.
What I am looking for - overview:
I was hoping I could take a picture of an existing hat and see if someone would make a few for me. I’m looking for at least 5 ultimately. If you only want to do 1 or two that may be best to start anyway. But I have 3 jackets and I’d like to put it in each one. And I also want to have two backups, since I am scared of losing them but dont want to be without one.
If you know of a site I should go to to find someone to make the hat, or you are the person, I just wanted some direction. This was just one of the first forums I found that seemed to be active and friendly.
About the hat:
I can send a few pictures of the hat next to a tape measure to get the dimensions. It is a very basic setup, even weave all around. It has nothing complicated on it other than the start & end spots. There is not folding part on it or anything. It is a simple wool, not too thick, but not so thin that it won’t fit in your pocket. The weave / pattern doesn’t need to be SUPER tight.
Backstory of how I came to LOVE knitted hats and why I don’t ask my mother in law for more of them:
My mother in law is amazing and made me two awesome hats. I used to wear uglier hats or baseball caps. Once I tried real knitted hats, I fell in love with how warm and nice / professional looking they are.
I am usually great at not losing things, but these hats seem to be easier to lose for
some reason, I don’t know if it is because they can fall out of my pocket, etc. I feel guilty for losing them, and I don’t want to be a burden. She only does maybe one thing per year for a few people she likes. I also want other people to get her awesome presents!
Why I love these hats to much:
- It covers just the tips of my ears, which means I can hear better, but my ears are back a bit so they are warmer and out of the wind.
- The look professional
- I can fold them up in my pocket and carry them around everywhere
- they are wool so they are warm and aren’t as easily messed up if they get wet
