    Feltable hat?

    Once upon a time, my mom bought me some wool to make her a nice warm hat. Since it's my only wool, and felting is all the rage, it would be nice to make a hat that's feltable. (So what if I end up keeping it for myself?)

    Any suggestions on how to be sure it will be big enough to wear afterwards? Should I limit myself to hand felting to keep it from getting too tiny?

    I usualy guess about 20-30% larger but it really depends on the wool. Felting by hand is certainly allows you more control over the shrinkage.
