Wynnie posted this pattern in her blog, and since my grandson wants to be a pirate this year, I gave it a shot. I used WOTA, one strand of black and one of brown, and reduced the pattern by 20%. I tried the pattern directions of wetting and throwing it in the dryer. I ended up wetting it 3 times, the last time in hot water, and running it through the dryer. It took longer than washing machine felting, but it was a lot easier to check.
I usually post FO’s in my blog, but with Halloween coming, I thought I’d share how fast and easy this pattern was.
