So I am not actually a guy who knits, but a girl who knits, so I hope I am not intruding. I am hoping you all may be able to help me out with an (apparently!) unusual request: my mother's boyfriend hunts, and I would like to make him a nice, warm, sturdy hat. I came across some "safety vest orange" yarn which inspired this idea. I have been looking for a felted men's hat pattern, and have not been finding much of anything so far! Could any of you help me out? I believe the yarn is bulky weight, and this will be my first attempt at felting so I would like something to help me out with the pre-felting dimensions. Also, a style with ear flaps would be a bonus. Thanks!
