*gasp* I LOVE IT!
This is the first thing I'm going to do!.. After I finish the Christmas craft!

But honestly, this is amazing! And the tutorial makes sense! Yay!

Awesome pattern. My brother who was walking past looked at it and said "I WANT ONE. I'd so wear that!". Since he's 18 and you got his finicky approval, you absolutely hit the mark. I started two of these for Christmas gifts for the two brothers immediately and have just about finished the base hats. My only question is... For the wool yarn used in the hawk: Do you use the ww wool felting yarn or the thick/bulky wool felting yarn? Being that its so expensive and I'm using 4 different colors between the two boys, I'd hate to get the wrong thing and have it come out...not as good. XD

Also, for everyone else, I was brainstorming while working, and since I absolutely did not want to figure out the requirements for a fully felted hat base, I was thinking to get that fuzzy solid look... do you think putting short wool tails over the whole hat before (or while) working on the hawk and *mildly* felting (possibly by hand so that I could get what I'm looking for) would achieve the look or just become a disaster? Granted this will take alot of short yarn pieces.

I didn't want to tackle the full felt and have it come out too small, too big, or mis-shapen. But I still want to make it warmer and thicker, and to give it more of a solid/ hair look so I'm going out on a limb here. I'd really like to give them something amazing and I figure after using acrylic yarn for the base I'd get the perfect size shape to work with. What do you guys think?

I have a question, as I think about it. How many strands wide if your mohawk? It looks the perfect size and not overwhelming.

What a fab way of getting around those school rules!

OK, my attempt at answering your questions... some I cannot answer as I do not have enough experience crocheting or felting.

I used Lion Wool (100% Wool yarn) - http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/lionWool.html
As for the felting of the entire hat... I don't know because this is my first felting project, hopefully someone else can answer your question.  If you want to make it warmer, you could use fleece to line the hat and attach it with a blanket stitch.  That is what I was thinking about doing for a different hat, for someone who lives in Colorado.  The kid that's receiving this one lives in Cali, so he doesn't need a really warm hat.

I attached the felting yarn in 4 horizontal, 5 vertical per row of stitches.

I am right now working on this (a modified version) for my 2 month old baby girl. Everyone will be so jealous. I am putting the hair on right now. I may or may not felt it though. Depends what it looks like when I am done.

it looks pretty good even when it's not felted, but when it's felted... it looks amazing!  That's my opinion anyway.  Post pictures when you're done!  I'd love to see it!

this is going to be the perfect hat for my mom's boyfriend, since 09 is my year for home-made gifts. Thanks a ton for solving that problem for me. XD
