I made this hat about a year ago for a little girl's birthday in Oct. Well I know it does not look like a hat so look at the next photo of it felted down to size. It is done in white alpaca that I handspun and decided to handknit because I have not figured out how to do the floppy brim on the knitting machine yet. If I made this again I think I would charge more than the $30. that I recieved for it. It was a lot of work! So soft and silky and the addition of the funfur yarn was wonderful to see how it changed with the felting process.

here is the finished hat. For an 11 year old's birthday. So the hat size is a wee bit smaller than for an adult. Very soft.
