Want to felt a hat but don't want the edge to flare... how?
I made a hat for my son and felted it and the opening flared, so it looks more like a Gilligan hat than a skull hat, if that makes sense. It was just a rolled brim hat before it was felted.
My husband wants a felted hat but I'm new enough to knitting that I can't solve this one on my own yet. I am thinking a ribbed edge or a moss edge might be helpful, or doing the first few rows in a smaller needle size, or even increasing after a few rows. ?? Would any of these work? Is there a simple solution? :thinking: Thanks!
