My daughter is turning 4 in a few months, and I'm trying to avoid paper party products, and I'm thinking that I'll make party hats out of felted wool.
At first I was thinking that I'd make them out of old sweaters, but couldn't figure out how to make the seam lie flat, and I thought about felting knitted hats.
I have a pattern for a pointy knit hat, and was thinking about making a bunch and felting them down.
However, I have never felted anything on purpose, and was wondering what type of yarn works best, and what size I should make the hats- should I knit the adult size and then wash, or knit the child size.
I would suppose it depends on the yarn, but I don't know much about what to expect from it- i usually work with cotton....
