That turned out great! 

I ordered the stirling yarn for mine a couple of days ago, so once it comes I'll be able to get started as well.

That's very pretty.  I very muchly want to make this hat.  I only have a million other things to make.  I love this shape of hat.  I hope I will have one made in time for the colder weather.  In fact, I'm sure I will and I'm sure it will match one of my scarves, if not I'm sure I'll knit one to match.  I'm sure I'll post a picture too.

i just started this using cream coloured 8ply wool. But I only just found out that "white" wool doesn't felt or doesn't felt as well as other colours because of the way its bleached. Has anyone had any success in felting white coloured wools and since this hat is only lightly felted is it likely to matter all that much? I've never felted before so any help or pointers you can give me would be appreciated. thanks

Hello, I'm sorry, I haven't been onto Craftster as much as I'd like lately! I would advise (if you haven't already) making a little swatch and hand felting it, just to see what happens. I've had good luck felting things that people say won't felt (silk/wool blends, light colors, etc.) As long as it firms up a little and looks a little fuzzy, I think the pattern will work out okay. Before I felted mine it looked like a normal hat, whereas things that are meant to be firmly felted usually look huge and misshapen before they are felted.

Hope this helps =)

I've got mine finished up to the fulling stage (it's been this way for awhile, but I hope to finish it up soon!).  I have to say the Stirling yarn is awesome, I think it definetly adds to this pattern.  AND, although I don't have a scale to check for sure, I am pretty sure I have atleast half of the huge skein left that I ordered from Webs-- So money wise, it's not very expensive for what all you get.

The yarn was a little difficult for me to work with, since I haven't worked with many different types of yarn yet, but seeing the fabric it produced was definetly worth it.  I'll post pics as soon as I finish... although it's so hot here I don't have much motivation to full and finish quite yet...  Wink

Phew, I'm really glad to hear this! I really don't want to discourage subbing because I almost always do it but the Stirling is so unique, it's really worth the cost, especially because you get SO much. It looks nice held with other stuff too...actually, I saw your adorable hedgehog--I think Stirling would be great animal yarn.

It was difficult for me too, my needle kept catching the little loops, but it was over quickly and it was worth it (in my opinion).

Can't wait to see it!

Great, I'm glad to hear it won't use up the whole skein. Now it is definitely on my list of things to knit. Might have to wait til fall though, can't imagine knitting hats in June.

I just ordered my stirling today - I went back and forth about buying it.  I looked all over for suitable yarn subs, but loved the original so much that I just did it.  To heck with credit card bills!!!

Yikes!  This reminds me that I still haven't finished mine!  I still have the embellisments to add, but it is a super cute hat...

...but since yesterday was 113 I really haven't had the desire to wear a warm cozy hat around, no matter how cute it is!

Princessliak--the yarn is really cool, and you'll have lots of yarn leftover, I am thinking I will incorporate some of my leftover into a stuff animal of some sort because the texture is so fun!

This is totally adorable. I was just in Urban Outfitters, and they had cute cloches, but my head is kind of large, so the 'one size' thing usually doesn't work for me. BUT felting it myself will let me control that! Yay! And thanks for the pattern.
