One kippah to rule them all!

Set in a black background (the only color that seemed appropriate) is a golden ring bearing the Elfish inscription "One Ring to rule them all." Wear your devotion to the Lord of the Rings series on your sleeve (well... head)! Wear it to the premiere of The Hobbit! Get one for each member of your Fellowshi... I mean all your friends. Far from turning you invisible, this is sure to make a great conversation starter on Shabbat!

When I finish a kippah, I determine that it is the right size (by using the traditional test of folding it in quarters, laying it across the back of my hand, and making sure that it’s at least 2 fingers wide – although mine are usually 3½ fingers wide). Then I block it by running it under cold water, fitting it to my mannequin head, and allowing it to dry upside down. Once dry, I attach a small label on the inside, apply a little starch, and iron it.

What sets my kippot apart from others (aside from Elfish lettering!) is their texture. By using a very small hook (some might even call it ridiculously small), I create a firm and sturdy fabric that will keep its shape on your head. I can only work for a couple of hours a day or else I run the risk of crocheting a hole in my finger!

This kippah will be mailed in a cardboard gift box, padded with a matched color of recycled shredded paper that will help it keep its shaped in transit.

This kippah should be pretty durable (Some say it can only be destroyed by casting it into the skein of yarn from whence it came), but you can machine wash it in cold water. Instead of putting it in the dryer, do the same thing I did to block it: Gently stretch it by hand to make it round again, then mold it to your (or the wearer’s) head by putting it on and pushing out evenly in all directions. Then allow it to dry upside down and it will retain its shape.

If you like this kippah but wish it had more of a personal touch, I can add just about any pattern, design, or lettering to a kippah. Just go to my store and click on the “Request Custom Item” link and we can discuss precisely what you’d like. Though if you'd like something else in Elfish you'll need to write it out for me. In the past I’ve done lettering, team and college logos, animals, flowers, geometric designs, and much more. For some ideas, check out my other items or the banner on my store’s homepage.

Thanks for looking!
