I got a hat block for Christmas – Lucky Me 🙂 This one is a cloche style of hat block made of styrofoam from Gillian Gladrag . These hat blocks come in 4 sizes:
|55/56||21 5/8||6 7/8||6 3/4||4|
|57/58||22 1/2||7 1/8||7||5|
|59/60||23 1/4||7 3/8||7 1/4||6|
|61/62||24||7 5/8||7 1/2||7|
Another good source for hat blocks.
If you are not sure of your hat or head size, using a tape measure, measure around the circumference of your head. Place the tape measure across the widest part of your forehead, just above your eyebrows, around the tips of your ears and across the back of your head. Take the measurement with the tape measure snugly but comfortably around your head – not too tight, unless you like a very tight fitting hat. You may need a friend to help you with this.
