I think this came out really cute! I used the pattern for Toddler Felt Hat (http://www.mindseyeyarns.com/resources/patterns/toddler_felt_hat.htm) except mine didn't curl up after it was felted.. probably my fault, but I like the end result. It was just screaming for a flower so made one and felted it as well. ;)

Modeled by Care Bear again as I don't have any toddlers around. :teehee:

That is absolutely adorable. My granddaughter (age 4 months now) has GOT to have one. I'm so glad you included a link for the pattern.

I'll have to do some looking for felted flowers, but I suspect they're not too hard to find.

Thanks! I couldn't find a felted one that I wanted for this hat so I made this one up. I CO 6 stitches and knit for about uh.. 4 in then decreased to about 4 stitches and knit for about 3 in or so. I ran a running stitch through the bottom and sorta twisted it the way I wanted then tacked it together and felted it with the hat. I did the center and sewed it to the hat when it was all dry.

Well, I didn't create a new pattern. I merely did the felting differently. The instructions say to get the hat and either jeans or an old towel soaking wet then toss them in a hot dryer. I wasn't sure about tossing dripping wet items in my dryer so I pretty much wet felted it in the washer, then drained the water (some spinning) and tossed it in the dryer. Maybe the wet felting caused this result? Not sure. I just did another hat so we'll find out tomorrow. :teehee:

Thanks!
