Felted Hat** now with pics!!**
It's a sad sad day...I felted my cloche from Knit One, Felt Too. IT'S TOO SMALL!!!! :crying: I matched the gauge, I stood over the machine, and within six minutes start to finish, the damn thing is toast. DH has been trying to "rescue" it for me, but I don't think it's gonna happen. We spent about ten minutes stretching it between the two of us and he's been watching tv, pulling on it for about half an hour.

Very sad...the only good thing is that my color work turned out well so I have learned a new skill.

Is it the right size for a child? Maybe you could give it to one.

It's not really a kid's style. I might know a couple people with preteens who might be interested. One of my instructors isn't quite 5' tall, maybe she could wear it if her head is small, too. It would be more her style.

That sucks. Bummer. I'll not complain about the little hat I just did taking three cycles to felt enough. I'm so sorry it shrank too much.

:( I'm so sorry.

I read a tip on another website about "un"felting something. The person suggested washing it (by hand, I think) in cold water with a little conditioner, and then stretching it some. She said it might stretch by up to about 20%. It's at least worth a try.

Would love to see a pic.

This is a time I wish I had a smaller head :rollseyes: So sorry to hear about the shrinkage. Maybe try the conditioner thing just to see? I'd love to see a pic anyway.
