I had this on the knitting board but someone suggested you all might be able to help, too!

I promise that I searched before I posted this question.  This may be a stupid question but I've never needle felted before so I figure it's okay.

Can I needle felt on a knitted hat that's made with acrylic yarn?  I want to make ladybug dots on a red baby hat I made.  I've deduced that needle felting will be the quickest way for me to add the dots, since I didn't do intarsia.  I also thought about knitting little i-cords and making them into circles, but that A) involves making a bunch of little i-cords and B) involves sewing all of those in.  Gross.

Can you help me?    Undecided

Also look in the Craftopedia - there is some info and links to completed projects there as well.

Best wishes on your hat.
