Ordered this hat and it arrived way faster than I thought it would. It looked exactly like the picture which is awesome! The hat is warm and feels/looks well made. I love the Triforce on it but I love love the Hylian on the sides. Just a touch that makes it totally unique. Strong work indeed

The shop owner was very accommodating regarding shipping even though my schedule was very tight. The items arrived just in the nick of time in perfect condition, looking exactly as pictured. Tomorrow, they will be gifted to an avid Harry Potter fan and her kids and I'm sure they will be overjoyed to receive them :) The designs of these hats are very unique compared to other Harry Potter-themed hats I had considered, which made them very appealing. They are immediately recognizable to any HP fan, but the design is not too busy as to be distracting. Excellent quality and exceptionally made; well worth the price!

Simply love the design of this hat! Most creators might have just repeated the Hylian crest on both sides, but the addition of Hylian script breaks up the composition just enough for much needed variety. The contrast of black, gold and green work very well together. Shop owner was very accommodating about shipping even though my schedule was very tight, which was greatly appreciated! Arrived on time in perfect condition, looking exactly as pictured. Excellent quality and exceptionally made; well worth the price!

About

Once there was a man with a knitting machine...

For the past 5 years or so, I have worked with my mom designing and knitting hats and mittens for high schools and sports teams.
Eventually I coming up with fan art designs that I wanted to do. I would usually give them as gifts and finally decided that it was worth trying to sell them. Turns out lots of people like nerdy knit goods as much as I do.
I knit hats and mittens inspired by video games, sci fi, fantasy, and other nerdy fandoms I can think of. I love making functional fan art. It makes my nerdiness seem useful :)
I take requests and custom jobs and I really enjoy making new things. Some projects are beyond my abilities but it's always worth a try.
