Quick to crochet with a large hook, then felt for a thick, warm hat! Accessorize with buttons, lucite buckles from our notions section, or washable ribbon.
-Design by Bev Galeskas, Fiber Trends Pattern AC11
-Size: Will fit most adult head sizes. Exact Finished size is controlled during felting and blocking. Block your hat over a hat form, bowl or ball that measures slightly larger than your head.
-Yarn: Approximately 360 yds (329 m) of a heavy, worsted weight yarn that felts easily such as Brown Sheep Co.'s Naturspun Worsted or Lamb's Pride Worsted. Hats can also be made using 2 strands of yarn such as a dk wt wool held with a strand of mohair (360 yds (329 m) each) Experiment and send us the pics!
This is enough to make the wide brim style, other styles will require slightly less yardage.
