Felted Project #2 - Complete!

This is unhip me in my new Emma from Hip Knit Hats Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting It's a bucket hat with three rows of purling at the crown to define the shape a bit. The yarn is Nashua Creative Focus Kid Mohair (75% kid mohair, 20% wool, 5% polyamide) knit up on size 10.5 needles.

It's got a nice brim to it. See?Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And the color! Teal + Cinnamon + hot water = something close to Pheasant. The hat needed a little something more. Rather than make a felted flower, I pinned on this carved wooden leaf brooch from the Philippines. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Excuse me while I state the obvious but this felted-hat thing is empowering!
