FO Funky Felted Fuschia Fedora
Omg Ladies n gents, I got it done. I was worried that the stitches would still show through but heck it felted beautifully.
I couldn't find a pattern for this so I am gonna post it on my blog so that ya'll can share in my happiness!!!
It's crocheted from "Brown Sheeps" Nature Spun in boysenberry. I used a size I hook and single and half double crochet.

Absolutely wonderful Fedora! And so unusual to see such a felted hat! I love seeing things that are 'unexpected'! Wonderful!!!

Mornin ya'll
I've decided that I need to "test" the pattern I have written out just to double check and I have some wonderful "suri merino" from plymouth in a gorgeous forest green almost dark teal, also in worsted weight (size 7 needles, 5 sts to the inch in knitting).
So we'll see just how much I remembered when I wrote down the pattern.
