Wynnie posted this (http://knitlikeapirate.com/projects/tricorn.html) pattern in her blog, and since my grandson wants to be a pirate this year, I gave it a shot. I used WOTA, one strand of black and one of brown, and reduced the pattern by 20%. I tried the pattern directions of wetting and throwing it in the dryer. I ended up wetting it 3 times, the last time in hot water, and running it through the dryer. It took longer than washing machine felting, but it was a lot easier to check.

I usually post FO's in my blog, but with Halloween coming, I thought I'd share how fast and easy this pattern was.

Oh wow! I keep a big costume bin that my son and grandson use (they are closer in age than any of my kids are LOL) and they would LOVE this!

Thanks! I reshaped it a bit to make it more 'pirate like', but between the costume, eyepatch, earring, bad teeth and sword, I think people will know what he's supposed to be. :teehee:

Yeah, me too. I consciously avoid the blog area because I already spend too much time at KH as it is. I tried visiting a couple of times, but there is just way too much in there, it's overwhelming. I would never catch up, much less keep up! Anyway, I like your hat. When I first saw your subject line, I thought the "aarrgh" referred to frustration (Ingrid having trouble? Not possible!), but now I see it's just a pirate expression. :rofl:
