Felted Hat

The Red Felted Hat

Wondering if the matching brooch is a good idea or not...

Details - though felted pretty closely, you can still see the shape of the crochet stitches

Brooch is nice on its own too... I eventually decided to make two separate brooches and just wear them as is and not on the hat

Hat looks better on a head I think

The hat is made from a simple hat design in a book called 'cool crocheted hats'. The yarn is Spotlight's own brand of pure wool in a orange red, with a ball of Daiso's red fluffy synthetic mohair. It is crocheted with a strand of each at once and felted well despite the synthetic.
