My design ideas and advice: I designed this hat because knitters were asking me to design an adult version of the Clapdale Hat from my Knitted With Love book. So I’ve named this Clapham after the village in the Clapdale valley, which is “just up the road” from Skipton!
We tried this hat on every head at my Yarnaholics group and found it fitted all head sizes. We measured all our heads as we had one or two knitters who thought they had big heads that hats couldn’t fit on, we found that we all have heads that were a similar size with a difference of 5cm between the smallest and largest. This hat fitted everyone’s head perfectly.
