Will you choose the classic vintage style cloche, maybe the perky Ladies Bowler or lastly there is the Trendy Derby style hat.

This knit and felt hat is knitted seamlessly using double ended needles, and is felted by simply washing!!

If you wish to use a substitute yarn -
Other Felting wools such as Rico creative or Twilleys Freedom wool.

If using a substitute yarn your project may felt to a different size, you may also have problems with the knitting felting shut. This can be avoided by putting plastic bags inside the project during felting.
