The end project is a hat called a "bucket hat." There are patterns for the bucket hat on the web. Two skeins crocheted together to make a think material of wool. I followed the directions step by step. I was happy with the shape but noticed the size was much smaller than it was supposed to be for a "man-size" hat. After a couple of rounds in the washing machine wash cycle I was happy with the felting. After drying though the hat was much too small for any man's head. I must confess, I didn't use the gauge or size crochet hook in the directions. So, all of that work around and around in the back loop only, washing, felting and I ended up with a very nice...felted bowl. I purchased a "P" hook and will be starting a new bucket hat following all of the directions including gauge and hook! Enjoy the pics!
