Felt It!: 20 Fun & Fabulous Projects to Knit & Felt Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Growing numbers of knitters are throwing caution to the wind and tossing their wool creations into hot water washing machines, watching as hats, bags, and pillow covers shrink away to a fraction of their original size. The result is a soft, cozy felt, and it has tremendous allure for many knitters.

From the purely practical to the wonderfully fun and frivolous, the 20 projects in Felt It! are irresistible examples of what is possible with wool, needles, and hot water. Charming, fuzzy flowers take center stage, with appearances on brooches, evening bags, bracelets, and pillows. Felted hats are the warmest toppers for the coldest days, and the appealing texture of felted wool is perfect for sturdy bags and backpacks.

Appealing to a wide range of knitters, felted knitting is a fun technique for beginners to play with and offers enticing challenges to more advanced knitters. For the beginner, the Simple Stripes belt pattern requires just a few hours of work for a colorful felted accessory to wear with jeans. The truly adventurous felter will love the Night-Star Wrap, an elegant shawl that matches rich color with the warmth of alpaca and perfectly sets off a simple black evening dress.

Author Maggie Pace explains all the basics of felting — how to choose wool, why some wools felt better than others, what size needles work best, how to shape projects, and how to monitor every second of the washing-machine process. At times, felting is an imprecise art, demanding inventiveness, creativity, and moxie from the knitter. Pace is there every step of the way, offering her insights and experience to everyone fascinated by the magic of felting.

Synopsis:

If you can knit it, then you can felt it!

Pick up your knitting needles, grab some warm fuzzy wool, and let designer Maggie Pace guide you through one of these 20 creative patterns for fun accessories. Just toss your finished piece in the washing machine and marvel at its transformation into lush, irresistible felt. With patterns ranging from simple scarves to challenging bags and hats, knitters of all levels can become felting artists in no time!

Synopsis:

Knit something big, wash it in hot water, let it dry, and voila! You have a beautiful felted item, cozy and lush. Felt It! offers a range of projects, including flowered brooches, belts, bags, hats, scarves, pillows, and place mats. Maggie Pace guides you every step of the way and offers expert advice on how to pick the right yarn for the desired effect, prevent overshrinking, use household objects as molds, and use the right increase stitch to help with shaping.
