Blocking Head - Knit Hats & Mittens

Sorry, this item has sold.

Does putting the handknits you worked so hard to make in a drawer or on a shelf make you sad? Us too! We believe that handknits are worthy of being on display at all times - even when you're not wearing them! This colorful hat display is just the thing to keep your knit hats at center stage all year long.

There are so many wonderful uses for this piece; here are just a few of our favorites:

• Use it to take stunning photos of your own knits, for your Ravelry projects page or your own online shop!
• Block your handknit hats - our heads are now waterproof!
• Store your knits in style in the off season!
• Take it to your next craft show as part of your booth display, and lure buyers from across the room!
• It's also great for displaying or storing headbands, your enamel pin collection, or your sewing and blocking pins!
• Giving a knit hat away as a gift? Why not include a beautiful storage option for the giftee to enjoy, too?

Now, here's everything you need to know about the head:

• Sized for adults (20.5 in/52 cm circumference)
• 12.5 in/31.75 cm tall
• Covered in hand cut, prewashed, 100% cotton fabric
• Sealed for strength and durability - now waterproof
• Foam core for light portability
• Pebbled finish prevents slippage
• Opening in base provides for optional mounting to another surface

You should also know that, while the fabric has been treated with a sealant which make the head quite sturdy, it is not waterproof. Please avoid exposing the head to prolonged contact with water.

This listing is for one fabric covered display head. You will receive the same color and print of fabric as shown in the photos; however, each head is one-of-a-kind, so yours may vary ever so slightly from the one shown here. We think giving you something unique is part of the appeal!
