Hattingdon® Christmas Hat Countdown — #5

Well we’ve reached the halfway mark counting down Hattingdon’s top ten best selling Christmas toppers from last year.

Let’s talk about #5.

This is one of my all time favorite designs and it has been on the top selling list since it’s introduction.

It’s not a classic hat, a beret or even a winter hat. It’s a ballcap. And a novelty ballcap at that.

The crown of the ballcap is in red. The brim and button top are green.

To give the ballcap’s crown some visual interest I created a diamond pattern and studded it in green.

That in and of itself would have made it a cute hat design. However, the pièce de résistance of the design insofar as I am concerned are the antlers.

This design is inspired by those funny antler caps of decades past. I remember them. Barely. But enough to create this cute, cute hat for Hattingdon.

Let’s take a look!

Remember those red noses that people used to put on the front of their cars? I checked the ‘net and looks like they still are, and antlers too.

When we first introduced the Rudy Hattingdon hat we offered a version with a red nose. And she was a very good sport about wearing it. Not quite sure why we retired it. Hmmm. Anyway, here’s a reminder.

Have we topped that?

Well, according to Hattingdon’s many fans we have four more Christmas hats that you rank higher than our darling Rudy.

Stay with us. We guarantee you will love #4 and I predict it may be #1 this Christmas.

See you then.
