Hip projects for knitters who want to take it to the next level
As the knitting population grows, many enthusiasts are seeking ideas for taking their designs in new directions. Felting, the art of shrinking your knitting, is often the next step. Fabulous & Flirty Felt, is a fashion-forward book of felted projects that are bright, sassy, stylish, and fun. It includes basic knitting, crocheting, felting and yarn-dyeing techniques in addition to project patterns. Each project contains a basic pattern and incorporates unique variations. The bags use funky novelty yarn such as eyelash or ribbon yarn, while other projects feature knitted bobbles, crochet trim, knitted fringe, or eyelet holes with grosgrain ribbon trim. Specialty yarns including hemp and boucle are incorporated into the patterns, resulting in unique and fun handbags, accessories and home decor. All of the pattern projects contain detailed instructions that are easy to follow and accessible to new knitters and felters.
