Two more felted hats. I figured out how to keep the brims rolled should you want that... follow the directions on the pattern. :roll: On this other hat (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29063) I made I felted in the normal manner of doing it in the washer which caused the rolled brim to unroll. I love the sweet feminine look of this anyway so it's nice to know how to do it.
Pattern - Toddler Felted Hat (http://www.mindseyeyarns.com/resources/patterns/toddler_felt_hat.htm)

The felted hats were difficult to photograph because they are a denser fabric. These are made with scraps of WOTA. They are a bit flat on top because I didn't have a good drying thing..I make enough hats I should invest in a wig head. :thinking:

A knitted hat from yarn donated for charity use. You can see Marshmallow giving it a good sniff! :teehee:

Jan, I love them, especially the deep pink one you posted... last week? My days are all running together. The unrolled brim was a nice touch!

Where does one buy a wig head? I'd ask my hairdresser if I were seeking one. She ought to be able to pick one up for you at wholesale supply prices.
