Felted Shoulder Cap


Here is a little shoulder warmer I hope you like.

I used a bulky yarn-Lion Brand Landscapes #273-Spring Desert, & a N-10mm hook. The yarn is - 50% wool, 50% acrylic. So I tossed it into a mesh bag and into the washer with some soap and warm water for a bit of a felting. It shrank some but only about 10 -20%.
The pattern works from bottom to top. Bottom circumference is 65 inches after felting.
