Finally! An adorable handmade knit melon hat for adults! Even better, the hat is made from up-cycled yarn from the Green River Thrift Store and made by our amazing knitting Frontier Fellow, Emily Howe!!! For our followers that don’t know, Green River has the world’s best melons, so this hat is basically as Green River as it gets.

Hat details: The hat has a two shades of green ribbing “rind”, off-white ribbing “inner rind”, and red “flesh” with black “seeds”. The watermelon seeds on the cap are knitted directly into the cap for a flat finish. This winter-time hat will fit the average adult head. The hat circumference is 24″, and will fit a head size of 22-23″. At a height of 11″ (including the 2.5″ pom pom on the top!), this hat will cover your ears warmly. The circular-knitting construction means that your scalp will not be irritated by any bulky seams.

Love it? Can’t live without it?! Well, buy it! As far as we know, Emily will not be making another of these hats so this is one-of-a-kind!
