Summary

Felting is a simple process: take a knitted object--anything from a purse to a holiday stocking--douse it in water, subject it to serious agitation, and let it dry. The result is cozy, dense, and durable--and totally different from anything you've ever knitted before.

In the follow-up to her best-selling Knit One, Felt Too, noted knitting designer Kathleen Taylor reveals just how to felt colorful Fair Isle, delicate cables, and blended novelty yarns. Her hugely imaginative projects, including gorgeous cabled handbags, stylish beaded hats and adorable appliqu'ed mittens, come with easy-to-follow directions and go far beyond basic felting.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In her follow-up to her first book, Knit One, Felt Too, Taylor offers new patterns and projects for veteran knitter/felters and those just starting out. Taylor starts with the basics: felting, for those who don't know, is as simple as accidentally shrinking a sweater in the wash: wool yarn knit on oversize patterns and then shrunk, resulting in "thick, soft, and fuzzy fabric." Anyone familiar with the basics of knitting and pearling--including some cabling--should be able to handle these projects, which range from hats and scarfs to slippers, bags and jackets for men, women and kids. An ideal gift for knitters at any stage, the book's bold, full-color design and cheery photographs make it easy to get enthusiastic about the next project. (Mar.)
