If you ordered a custom crocheted hat for a child and you said I'll need age 1 as she's 11 months now would you expect them to make 6-12 or 12-18?

Age 1-2 years

I would have thought most people would think better big and be grown into rather than only lasting a few weeks before it's too small

I'd expect to be asked if there was that much difference.

12-18 months

What do you mean dame?

If I was a crochet hat maker and someone asked me to make an "age 1" hat, if I only made 6-12 months or 12-18 months sizes, I would ask them which size they wanted!

NoFucksImAQueen Thu 27-Oct-16 18:30:06

I assumed they'd make 12-18 but they made 6-12
When I messaged they said oh I made 6-12 as you said she's only 11 months hmm
It's kind of feels like they're putting the blame on me and bad customer service really riles me. I'm happy to send the hat back but it the accusing tones and the" i did put it on the invoice..." which yes I didn't read as I'd waited 2 days for it and chased it up so when you emailed it I jut clicked pay now

Iv ordered 3 sets from her and this is the fourth in dd's fairly short life span so I'd like to think that makes me a regular customer and it's obvious I'm not a chancer.
Blah if anyone has a grip laying around pass it this way grin

I would either ask or make 12-18months.
Pretty sure if they've made something too small and it was ordered online you can return it for a refund under distance selling rules.

Cross post. <throws grip your way>
Totally understand your irritation though

harderandharder2breathe Thu 27-Oct-16 18:33:37

If you've ordered before surely you know the sizes?
Ya both bu imo, you should have specified and she should have clarified

StrongTeaHotShower Thu 27-Oct-16 18:34:48

12-18 obvs!

AliceInUnderpants Thu 27-Oct-16 18:39:39

Age 1 is 6-12 months to me. Likewise age 5 is 4-5 years and 10 years is 9-10.

Why did you ask for 'age 1', instead of 12-18 months/1-1/2years? What sizes did she offer?

AmeliaJack Thu 27-Oct-16 18:49:42

I would have assumed 12-18 months too. However I'm surprised you didn't have to select a specific size when you ordered.

Perhaps a learning point for both you and the seller. Frustrating though.

I think that since 11 is between 6 and 12 she wasn't unreasonable, although it would have been better if she checked... And since it was on the invoice, sorry, YABU.

RebootYourEngine Thu 27-Oct-16 18:59:13

Surely if it is being custom made it would be 'made to fit'. ie. Id measure my childs head and get the hat made to fit.

NoFucksImAQueen Thu 27-Oct-16 19:05:43

Alice she didn't offer any sizes, this is the fourth one Iv ordered and the others I said 3-6 and 9-12.

I was trying to remember why I'd said age 1 and I remembered that it was because I'd asked about what age the ears could be pointy till (bunny hat) and she said 0-12 so Id said I'd need age 1 as she's 11 months
as in a way of saying would that work even though it's over the size you do them till...

NoFucksImAQueen Thu 27-Oct-16 19:07:28

Oh and I hate the age 5 for 4-5 10 for 9-10 etc it's such bull. If you see an age 5 your mind automatically jumps to it must be for a 5 year old so why isn't it 5-6 and why not just say 5-6!

NoFucksImAQueen Thu 27-Oct-16 19:09:25

My own but 11 is barely between 6-12 though isn't it? I mean I accept this was equally my fault and I was really nice in my message to her even saying I should have specified but at the same time, in my head, why would you make something they'll be grown out of in a month?

harderandharder2breathe Thu 27-Oct-16 19:17:16

So you wanted something she only does up to 12 months? If I was her I would've done 6-12 months too!

NoFucksImAQueen Thu 27-Oct-16 19:20:02

No she makes hats above 12 months but the ears are recommended to be "floppy" on bigger sizes
