Details

Just about anything you can knit can be felted - that is shrunk with heat and agitation to create a thicker, more durable fabric. The knitting goes fast with fat yarn on big needles, and felting is easy and fun, but learning how to make all of it come together takes some skill. More than just a pattern book, Beverly Galeskas shows you how to:

  • choose and test yarns
  • correctly size a knitted piece for felting
  • accurately shrink items by hand - and machine - washing
  • improve your results with blocking
  • care for your felted knits


  • Novice and experienced knitters alike can choose from the book's 36 projects to create bags and totes, hats, mittens, vests and slippers, as well as pillows, placemats, and coasters to complement your decor. This invaluable resource also includes sections on embellishing your felting and about felting on felt (needle felting).
