Felted hat takes shape

I have had a wonderful afternoon making such good progress on the felted hat for Alice.

We decided that she needed the medium size but of course once the hat is felted it can easily be shaped and sized on her head.

Alice chose a gorgeous dark and light grey cascade 220 yarn which is very nice to knit with and really felts well. The pattern is very easy well written for both the knitting and felting directions.

By the time I left the bookshop I was well on the way to having the brim completed.

These hats are quite additive so as you can see I have now done half of the knitting for the crown. And I have to stop and start preparing dinner!!
