FeltingBook - 2004
Felting--or boiling a knit item so it shrinks and the fibers mesh together--yields amazingly durable, beautiful pieces with unusual textures. It's the perfect technique for beginners because many mistakes just disappear during the washing process. With this new entry in the popular Vogue: Knitting on the Go series, knitters can get in on this increasingly popular technique and make more than 20 stylish projects. An introduction explains all the knitting basics and felting fundamentals, from yarn selection to blocking and finishing the final product, and there's a wide variety of great things to create. Knit a flower clutch bag, baby blanket, pillows, a snake toy, beret, tea cozy, slippers, scarves, multicolored mittens, and more.
