Because you never know how something will turn out with the felting process, working out the right formula for number of stitches and increases can be a trial and error situation. My first try came up a bit short and wasn't quite right, but my good friend, April, was pleased when I gave it to her.
My second try came out perfect and I am excited to present this Ivory Wool Cloche with a Pink Rose to you this snowy Sunday morning.
I am amazed at how much yarn and knitting it takes to make this hat. I can't resist sharing a before picture so you can see just how big these start out!
I already have a second one drying. I made this one in brown and orange and will accessorize it with a large button.
What colors would you like to see this hat in? I was thinking reds, greys and perhaps a black.
Until next week ~ Stay Warm and keep you needles clicking!
