Description

The original Hermit the Crab hat. This hermit crab hat looks adorable on everyone. Babies and adults can both enjoy this fun animal hat. It makes a fun photo prop or costume.

Please keep in mind that it takes me roughly 3 weeks to craft this intricate hat from start to finish, so expect a bit of processing time before your hat ships.

This animal earflap cap is made with extra soft acrylic yarn so you will always be comfortable while wearing your hermit crab hat. The red hat is trimmed with black and has black braids from its ear flaps; tie it under your chin or let the braids dangle. Your hermit crab's eyes are three-dimensional (3D) and not flat, so your hat will look great from all angles.

The hermit crab hat can make a great costume if you want to dress up like a crab, a hermit crab, or a lobster. This hat also reminds me of Sebastian from the Little Mermaid.

Size Notes:
- Adult size fits most men, women, and older teens (21’’ - 24’’ head circumferences)
- Child size fits most children ages 2 to 14 (19’’ – 21’’ head circumferences)
- Toddler size fits most babies ages 3 months to 2 years (16’’ – 19’’ head circumferences)
- Baby size fits most babies ages 0 - 3 months (13'' - 16’’ head circumferences)
