I have a ton of worsted weight soft luscious yarn. I've been mulling over hat options, and now I'm thinking...gnome hats!
The Peanut has, like her mother, a "slightly larger than average" noggin. Hence, I make a 4-7 year old hat for my 2 year old. I've never felted before, so I don't know what to expect of shrinkage.
I was thinking of doing this pattern: http://community.livejournal.com/knitting/75126.html
since the pattern indicates it's pretty forgiving, then felt and see what happens...
Thoughts? Tips or tricks? Should I work it in the ribbing or, since it's going to be felted, just work in...garter?
