I've never felted before. I have some wool yarn which I'd like to knit into a capelet for my ten-year-old daughter. I just want a simple, knit in the round pattern (no opening). I've browsed KnittingPatternCentral, but I haven't found any quick, simple felted capelet pattern. Anyone have a link for a pattern, or any ideas to create my own? As I've never felted, I'm only worried about how knit it to size, so it will not be too small after I felt it. Any general tips would be appreciated!
Oops...sorry. I thought I was posting this under pattern central.

hi kayeknit, I'm not finding any felted caplet patterns... but you could still use the wool and make one for her that is not felted... I did find this (http://knitting.about.com/od/felting/qt/felted_swatch.htm)on info how to create your own felting...:happydance:

Thanks for that link.
But gosh, I have enough trouble getting my gauge right without worrying about all that extra math!
I'm scared!
