Default Ribbon through holes of beanies?

Hello ladies!!! REcieved my first ever (many delys!) shipment of crocheted Kufi hats for my show in Nov. I see them with ribbon woven through. What size do you use for this and then do you just fabric-tac the ends together??

I have a hat pattern that I sell and I use 3/8" ribbon and fabritac or hot glue works just fine for the ribbon ends glued together.

I don't do the ribbon weaves for shows, since you don't know who will buy the hat and their head size. For custom orders, I have them measure their head and I use velcro and e6000 it to the ends, that way they can switch out the ribbon weave. I have people who buy just extra ribbon weaves.

I don't do the ribbon weaves but what a smart way to do it by attaching the velcro to it! Thanks for sharing that great tip!

I LOVE that idea of the ribbon weave!!! I thought of that too - like who knows how big their head would be and then the ribbon would make the hat too small! How long do you make the actual 3/8 ribbon then? And how much is covered by velcro?? What a concept!!!!!

I ask them to give me a measurement in inches of around their head where the ribbon would be, and then I add an inch or two. I only put about a half inch width of velcro. It is more to be able to change out the ribbon, instead of making it adjustable.

No problem!

Any since you are just E6000 ing the velcro, you could always have a variety of 3/8 ribbon on hand and measure their heads at the shows. Then have them walk around for a while while the glue cures. I hold in place with alligator clips. Just tell them not to weave through for a day or two.

I just tie mine in a bow in the back and that way it can fit any size head and can be changed out very easy! I love these hats and wish I could fid a great wholesaler!
