A few years ago, I was in a wicked car accident, luckily i knew how to crochet. I ended up getting by in life by selling hats. I couldnt walk but i could have my girlfriend fetch me yarn, and i could bang out hats left and right. This turned into me selling about 100 hats on newschoolers in 2004. I never had one person upset at the hat.
The following winter 2005 i did a batch of hats for the retail shop at a basin.
Since then (making another like 50 hats for them) i had put my hook away.
But now, in an effort to pay for my expensive winter camping purchases, i pulled the hook out of retirement. I wanted to make as many hats as i could to sell at the phish festival. I will give people here a chance for first pick if this is something anybody is interested in.
I now use the finest materials. So my margin is much lower. The yarn is a dope wool/acrylic and some all wool, some with merino wool (still being made)
I am looking to get 20 dollars for a basic hat, 22 for earflaps, 24 dollars for a brimmed hat. People might sell them cheaper, but i garuntee its not wool blend, or to the high quality standards that my hats live to.
Here is what i have made so far.
where i change colors, there is no gap, colors line up in an even line. any other handmade hat i have seen nobody can have them in a line. These hats are all original, and the designs i came up with years ago while injured.
paypal would be great, and i can do customs, but custom orders would be started early november. i could do a custom for about the same price, since i have a ton of yarn. SWEET XMAS GIFTS!
Here is a photo of my factory, as you can see the working conditions are very safe. MADE IN AMERICUH. Thanks!
