A simple felted cap lends itself to embellishment.  For the past couple of years, Laura Irwin has made dozens of caps, each one a little different.  She’s played around with various felting yarns and added all kinds of decorative elements: ribbons, buttons, toggles, and cutout felted shapes.  For this version of her cap, she has used needle felting to create a curving graphic line across the crown.  Knit up your own cap, felt it, then follow Laura’s applied design or create your own.
