Knittin' Crap: Wizard Pasties!

Not Mini Wizard Pasties Well, not really. They're mini-prototypes for a sorcerer's hat I got sucked into making. They'd been sitting around unfelted for months, but last night I finally got to commandeer Steve's washing machine, which gets unbalanced if I even look at it wrong, and they felted up nicely. I'm using Valley Yarns Berkshire, which is a soft wool/alpaca blend.

Measurements for the pointier hat (on the left):
Before felting After felting
Brim diameter7.75"6.875"
Opening diameter4.5"2.5"

I'm going to make one more prototype, with a slightly more pronounced cone, and then move on to the full-sized hat.
