I’m not a hat person, but thankfully that didn’t cause me any problems today. Unlike some recent Strands puzzles, which required a certain amount of specialist knowledge, ‘hats’ as a theme is much more approachable. Maybe we all have an inherent knowledge of hat names. Perhaps there’s a deeper connection between hats and the essence of life. Who knows?

Although technically the theme isn’t ‘hats’, but ‘headwear’, the answers like TURBAN and BONNET were a bit challenging to identify compared to the others. The spangram, which spans nicely from left to right in the middle of the board, was quite straightforward to uncover.
