My First Hat

I have had a arge for ages to make a hat. This week Iv been reading and watching Andrea Graham's blog. Andrea is a very inspiring felt artist and she's been making hats all this week. So I decided to make one for the chilly winter events.

Here's the template that I used and my hat. It did start looking like the sorting hat out of Harry Potter, but I changed it a bit!

It was made out of Merino wool and added pieces were dyed scrim and sari waste. It start off too big and I will defiantly cut down my calculations next time. I must admit iv really enjoyed making it.

Oh and thank you very much for all your kind comments on mylast post - colour reflections . I'm glad that you found it all interesting and useful.

I'm just working up to making a beret tomorrow. Must be something in the colder weather. That hat is amazing. What did you use as a block? I've been trying all the bowls in the house for size!
Thanks for your comments re the flowers I'll try and get some wire to try to make stems.
