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

Not like I know anything but...

Maybe you could add a fur trim? Kind of like on YarnMommy's baby poncho? I guess this might be difficult since it's felted already, but maybe it will work?

Amy...any ideas from the land of knittery-smarts?

you could knit a strip to fit the hat as fringe, or an extension...and then sew it to the felted part like you meant it all along.

Great idea for the fur trim! Can't get any smarter than that!
