Genre: Knitting
ISBN: 978-1936096367

Rating: 5

With her signature style, the bestselling and beloved needlework author Nicky Epstein offers the best guide to felting. Using ten chic garments and more than 150 stunning sample swatches as examples, she covers the top techniques for turning wool yarn into vibrant and dense textures. Before and after shots show how different fabrics react to the process, and there are patterns, stitches, and techniques for lace, mosaics, cables, plaids, checks, and quilting.A Selection of the Crafter's Choice Book Club.

This book is not so much a pattern book as it is an encyclopedia. There are some projects, but the focus is techniques. I love designing my own patterns – I never follow other people's patterns if I can make my own – and this book is perfect for designers who are looking for new ways to felt.

This book shows you how to felt shapes into your work, create patterns and designs, and utilize texture, shape, and color for some really cool effects.

Recommendation: Knitters who are just getting started in felting, or looking for some new techniques to incorporate into their felting.
