Based on the famous portrait of Prince Arthur Tudor, this hexagonal crowned hat with turned up pverlapping brims starts life about three times its final size and is then brushed and fulled repeatedly to bring it down to a very firm finish in which the original knitted structure is often hardly visible.
Most colours are available and I can dye yarn to order if the shade you need is uncommon. Black, red and blue are the most frequently requested. Please let me know your head-size (measure round your head where you would like it to sit) when ordering.
Made to order. The way our order book is currently working, we open the shop approximately once a month for new commissions and shut it again once we have as many orders as we think we can realistically make over the next 6 weeks or so. Please be aware that your order may fall anywhere into that timescale. We'll always aim to be as prompt as we can.
