Over the summer I made a hat with the nålebinding technique. My first attempt failed because it was too small, my second attempt was too big but since it had to be felted this wasn't a problem. This hat was made without any instructions and therefore I just could keep my fingers crossed that it would work out.
Here you can see how much it felted, the hat rests on the same helmet as in the first picture. The helmet helped to keep the shape while it was drying. Hardly anything stitches of the process are left to be seen which is a bit unfortunate but it became a lovely warm hat for the winter and that's what counts.
