Could this hat be re-created using this felting technique? I only knit and crochet, and I thought I could do it that way, but so far I haven't had a lot of luck getting it just as I want it. Someone told me it was more likely that the hat would work better if just felted... so I thought I'd ask here. I love the fold, but can't figure it out. Any ideas on its construction? Hints on techniques? I've seen some really beautiful hats on here, so I hope yall can help! Thanks.



Yes, it is Anne Darrow's hat from King Kong. Best part of the movie, imo! :-)

Have you checked out feltalong #8 - it can be done by needle felting or wet felting - just takes much time and effort.  Best wishes.

That hat makes me think of GraceO's wonderful creations.
So classic and classy!

Do follow GraceO's tutorial - there's no better person to teach you how to make a hat in that style  Wink
