What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to find a yarn that is good for felting. Although I used the yarn called for in the pattern I didn't think it felted as easily as I would have liked.

I think it came out great! For your future felting projects, white/ecru wool yarn usually doesn't felt as well due to how it is treated to get the color. I always tell my students to knit a swatch and felt it first to see how it will felt and then make adjustments accordingly. I still think the hat is adorable! Great job!

I really love this hat. You did a GREAT job - color design, sizing . You got it all ! I'm excited about trying it, but can't seem to find the pattern. Can you help ?

I'd be happy to help you but I bought the pattern at my yarn shop. The only thing it says is "Johanna Designs". You might try your yarn shop and see if they carry her patterns.
