I just finished this felted wool hat for a friend. I love how it came out! It was not originally intended to be felted, but it was so large when I was done that I had to shrink it a bit to make it human-sized. I like the felted effect, even though some of the detail is lost, and it will be especially warm for the snowy weather in which my friend lives. The pattern is free from the Yarn Zombie and I knitted it using Shepherd’s Wool yarn in Navy and Granite colors on size 5 circular needles. The turquoise was a scrap donated by a knitting friend. The only change I made to the pattern was to knit it from the top down instead of from the brim up.
