SO, while I was "pondering" my decrease question, and checking the forum, I had my cloche hat felting, which I FINALLY finished this morning, after starting it 2 months ago. I went to check the washer, I pulled out the hat, and NOW THE DARN THING IS TOO SHORT!!!!!!!!!! It looks like a beanie with a brim... I just need a little propeller for the top. That's what I get for not paying attention!!
I tried stretching it and only succeeded in smacking myself in the forehead
So now what do I do with a too short felted hat?
On a happier note, the booga bag I was felting at the same time turned out beautifully. However, a booga bag won't keep my head warm
