I used what I thought was the round template from the course….. which makes a ten or eleven inch beret. I layed it out last weekend and was all ready to felt and full it yesterday. But it didn’t seem to be shrinking down to the size I expected and it was then that I noticed the rolled up template on the floor of the studio! And I realised too late that I had accidentally used a round template for a hat brim – which was about five inches bigger….
So now I have a very big beret!!!
I wondered if it was beyond use but I tried it on and scrunched and folded it while it was still damp and actually I quite like it…. even the Scotsman says it has something (although he didn’t specify what!!)
