Curly Q Hat
Curly Q Hat by Hélène Rush
too big
Needles & yarn
US 8 - 5.0 mm
108 yards
Feline Fibers 2-ply wool

Black Mountain Weavers in Point Reyes Station, California

Someday I will learn how to compensate for the fact that I knit really loosely. The hat came out too big around. So I felted it.

Someday I will learn how to pay attention to the washing machine when I felt something. It felted it a bit more than I intended it to.

Now the shape is sort of cloche-like. I like it in an “embracing serendipity” sort of way.
