JUST LIKE BUYING A HAT, A KIPPAH CAN HAVE DIFFERENT WIDTHS.
THEY CAN ALSO HAVE DIFFERENT SHAPES LIKE: FLAT, DOME, HEAD HUGING ETC
LARGER YARMULKAHS, BUT ESPECIALLY FULL HEAD COVERS, PART OF THE DESIGN IS TO KNOW HOW WIDE TO MAKE THE
KIPPOT OR YARMULKES
CAN BE DESIGNED TO FIT YOUR HEAD
All of my yarmulkahs are hand crocheted.
But To compare my sizes to a kippah you usually wear, please note that Standard satin Yarmulkas/Kippot are domed
shape and are 8" in Diameter.
Standard leather/suede kippot are usually 2 sizes = 6" and
My Kippot are NEVER starched so most can be smoothed to fit the shape of
Most round flatish kippot are measured as you would a diameter of a
Most longer kippot (8" or larger) are measured by folding in half,
then measuring the
radius times 2. (Because of the curves)
My Kippot are:4" (Bris/Brit)5" to 5 1/2" Petite ladies or small man's.
6" to 6 1/2" Average woman's or average crocheted man's
7"-7 1/2" Large womans or slightly above average man's.
Still needs clips or something to hold it on your head.
The following needs no pins for most men's styles but would need a comb or clips for
ladies: 8" to 8 1/2"
Large 9" to 10" Extra Large. 11" and 12" Extra Large
Full Head covering for most.13" to 14" Extra Extra Large FULL HEAD
Sizing is really a personal
preference. I have seen children in Extra large kippot and Adults in Extra small.
can make most styles in different sizes and colors.
WHERE YOU WOULD NORMALLY CENTER THE TOP OF YOUR KIPPOT. TAKE YOUR TAPE MEASURE
FROM THE BACK TO THE FRONT OF YOUR HEAD AT THE POINT YOU WANT THE KIPPAH TO
WHAT SIZE YOU WANT?
THIS MEASUREMENT TELLS YOU WHAT SIZE YOU WANT.
Drawing by my customer George. Thanks
a full head cover which in his case was a 14".
Your measurements for your
yarmulkah that won't need clips would be anywhere from 8" to 14+".
important that once you decide what size you want the kippah, you measure around
your head at that point. So in this example George went around his head at the 14" point
and came up with his final measuremets of 24"
MEASURE YOUR HEAD TO GET THE CORRECT WIDTH
TAKE A TAPE MEASURE, STRING OR YARN AND MEASURE THE CIRCUMFERANCE OF
YOUR HEAD AT THE POINT YOU WANT THE KIPPAH TO STOP=Length=Size.
The width meaurement should be something like 18" to 25".
On the diagram above he would have measured at the point where
the number 14 is on the diagram.

Pricing a yarmulkah.
Price for your yarmulkah can vary by thickness of
cotton used and the size of the kippah.
Thicker cotton can take me a little
quicker to make so a little less expensive.
Not always though, as the actual cost of thicker cotton may be more
Each 1/2" of length on larger yarmulkahs can take me 1 hour or so
Some 14" kippot can take me 10 or more hours to crochet!
