First ever ‘almost’ felted hat

I knitted this hat in one evening and felted it the next day 🙂 

felted-hat-11

It probably could have done with a bit rougher treatment – but I was scared….you know?  There is still some stitch definition – perhaps I will give it some more hoo-har and shape it again 🙂

I cast on 140 stitches, knit 15 rows, then decreased some, knit another 15 rows then decreased some more.  I then knit a whole heap of rows, then decreased over about 15 rows for the crown…..not bad for a first effort 🙂

Now to decorate for the impending brithday of a friend’s little princess !
