Possible to make a "felt" pattern?
I simply cannot find a pattern for a felted beanie. (yes...a felted beanie. DH says that's about the only thing he'll wear.) I did find a cool reversibla beanie pattern, and I was wondering...is it possible to just add stitches (in an organized fashion of course) to make the pattern bigger and...be able to felt it? Sorry if that was confusing.

Why not just use the same pattern, and use larger needles? Do a felting swatch, so you can calculate the shrinkage.

Here's a felted hat pattern that could be worked without the bottom "flip" www.lewiscraft.ca/project01.php?innum=3503 then it would be a beanie

and... here's a site of nothing but felted items http://www.knittingpatterncentral.co...lted_items.php
