This past month I crocheted and felted four bucket hats and not one of them turned out to be the right size for the little girl I was hoping to gift it to.
On the bright side, I feel like a crocheted bucket hat & felting pro (except for the whole sizing aspect obviously).
At least Kit has a new hat to keep her warm.
