This pattern calls for Lion Brand Landscapes ... which is 50% wool and 50% Acrylic I want to use WOTA ... which I have been using on my other felted hats. What kind of difference do you think using 100% wool will make in the felting and size? Once you get to the crown the number of stitches is almsot the same as the WOTA hat ...the guage is also almost the same. Here is another post about this hat ...

i don't now but Landscape is a LOT thicker than worsted. Hobby lobby has it on sale for $3.99 this week too.

I have some leftover landscapes that I used to make a a purse and the gauge knits up the same as two strands of WOTA ... I am curious about the fleting part ... Maybe I will have to go get more landscapes like I have and make the hat match the purse .... I have a granddaughter ..... so if the WOTA hat gets way small.... she can have it ..... hmmmmm .... will have to do my experiment in a little girl/ big girl color :)
