Description from

I love to wear my hair in pigtails, but when I wear a hat I look like I have growths on my head. I made this hat with little turtlenecks so I could still do my creative hairstyles in the winter.

These hats can (and should) be made to fit the position of the wearer’s pigtails. I’ve given two versions of the hat, showing multiple options. v.1 has a ribbed bottom and necks with the nippertail holes towards the back. v.2 has a rolled bottom and rolled necks with the nippertail holes in the middle of the head. Decide which you like better of the ribs and rolls, put your hair up, and mark off the position of your personal nippertail holes. This would work really well for people who only wear one ponytail also. Play with the design and have fun!
