How do you fix a beanie that is too big?

If your beanie is too big, whether because of a knitting or crocheting miscalculation or because it stretched, you can shrink it back to size with hot water.

Should I bend the brim of my hat?

You can always bend your bill to curve more, or work it out flatter if you need to. Aside from flat bills, most hats are sold with a slightly curved bill that can be molded to be more curved, if you want. Wrap it around a baseball with a rubber band, and you’ll get that perfect classic look.

How do I keep my witch hat from falling off?

Here’s my suggestion. Buy a cheap head band (wide and fabric if possible) … if it is plastic, just wind ribbon around it. Sew the witch hat to the headband. The headband should keep the hat clamped firmly to your head/wig.
