I have knitted and felted a hat. It is too big. Can I put it back in hot water to try to shrink it some more?

The hat has already dried.

  • Depending on how big it is, you should be able to continue felting until it's the right size. All depends on how much smaller it needs to go.

  • it won't shrink a whole lot, but yes you can shrink it some more by refelting it.
