What are you most proud of? The way it's possible to make a knitted hat look like it came from a milliner's shop! It is not difficult to get a very professional result.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with colors and embellishment, but don't worry - if you want to make it just like the sample, all the info is in the pattern. This pattern is not difficult - it just has several steps and an ambitious beginner can do it

That is so cool and chic. I WANT ONE!

Thank you! It's not really hard to make - give it a try!

this is really cute!! How big did you make the hat before felting?

Thanks! Usually this kind of felting shrinks anywhere from 30 - 50% - it all depends on the yarn and how much you decide to felt it. Making a swatch and testing it helps to figure out the sizing - there's no exact rule!

I'm pretty sure my jaw literally dropped when I saw this. I can barely wrap my head around it being knitted! Basically, I want to throw it on and step inside an Agatha Christie book. Failing that, the pattern is wishlisted!

Oooh! Thanks so much! I must admit, I was amazed with the 1st one I made - the knitted felt is so versatile, and not difficult to do.
