I made a hat for my boyfriend and it is slightly too large. This makes the ear flaps be in the wrong place. If we fold some of the hat over in the back it fits perfectly. What would you do about this? I am tempted to open up the seam in the back, fold over the too big parts and reseam it, except that it has a blanket stitch border.

Could I try just shrinking it overall with some mild heat? It’s 100% wool however, so there is the felting issue.
