Hey everyone, just trying my hand at felting



Does anyone have any tips for a newbie? I've recently been told that knitting lose gives a better felt, anyone else have this experience?

Most felted patterns are knit with much larger needles at a really loose gauge, and sometimes with 2 strands held together. The looser sts and multiple strands rub together easier and that's what felts the item. Take a look at some patterns and see what weight yarn they use, what needle size and whether they use 2 strands.
