The Big Kahuna Slouchy Hat works up fast and easy and is big on style and perfect for men, women, teens, tweens and children. Available in three sizes to fit everyone in the family, 3 years and up. Optional edging to include beading for personalization.

Make it your own!
String letter beads and spell out fun or inspirational words and attach to the sc rnds. If the beads slide too much, attach each separately.

Get the Kids Involved! They can help pick out what they want the hat to say and help string the beads.

Suggestions: Child’s name, Love, Let it snow, Rock Star or Big Kahuna. Or, make the hat in school spirit colors and add the school’s name or sport. European charms (Pandora style) look great too!
