My husband has been bugging me for a while to make him a hat. I saw this pattern in a Woodland wool works catalog awhile back. www.knitology.com . He also wanted it to be hand spun. So of course I did. I bought the fiber from Woodland too and its called Tartan green. The dark brown is some hand spun I had for a long time. I'm not sure what it is but it was the color he wanted. When I finished, it was way to large so I washed it and then put it in the dryer for about 10 to 15 minutes until it fit him the way he liked. So its lightly felted.
