Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School-Many of these 25 patterns will appeal to teens. The thorough instructions and colorful photographs will entice any knitter (and some would-be knitters) to pick up a pair of needles and get started. Teen-friendly projects include colorful hats, beautiful bags, snuggly slippers, and a teddy bear. The illustrated glossary of terms is a great resource for new knitters.

From Booklist

As Taylor notes, it's disconcerting to shrink a sweater in the washer, but if you knit a loose, oversize garment and then shrink it on purpose, you have turned a wool object into felt. But it's not quite as simple as that. Some yarns and some brands felt more quickly, some need a few minutes in the washer, and others require three full cycles. Taylor offers 25 projects, first showing how to knit the item, then how to get the desired look. The projects are quite inventive, from toddler slippers shaped like bunnies to wine bags decorated with grapes. Taylor's enthusiasm combined with the straightforward instructions and eye-catching color photos will entice knitters. Ilene Cooper

5.0 out of 5 stars A Felting Must Have Jan. 26 2004
Format:Paperback
I have been knitting for over 15 years, but this year's Northeastern Winter has made me try felting. I purchased Felted Knits first and was in love, then I found Knit One, Felt Too. This is the first book I have actually taken time to read the introduction and background on felting. It is really a well thought out and well written book. But the hook is the patterns, they are all very simple, yet fantastic to do. The book uses only 2 different sizes of needles and the yarn is easily found. What more can you ask? Its great for beginning knitters and experienced ones. Kathleen encourages you to branch out and try different color patterns and accessories than what she uses.
This book should definitely be on every knitter's shelf.
I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - honest and lots of info for felting Dec 26 2003
Format:Paperback
The ideas and projects are amazing. If you like inspirational eye-candy that makes you want to run out and get some supplies - this is the book for you.
When it comes to good instructions and real-life experience in the variable nature of felting, it doesn't dissappoint at all. The information is presented in a factual way, and the cautions she warns about don't come off as preachy.
Even if you don't make every project in the book, the photography is wonderful, you can see the effects of using the yarns as she reccomends. She includes some embellished items as well (beads and felt applique adorn some projects).
Its a great book, I think it would be a wonderful addition for any knitter's library!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book June 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a great book to get a solid understanding of felting and what can be done with felted fabric (it can be cut, who knew?!). The patterns are easy to follow and comprehensive. However, if you have a chance to flip through the book be aware that patterns for some of the items featured are not included in the book. I intended to make felted clogs which are pictured in a feature on "fiber trends" and was disappointed to find the pattern was not included. Overall, an excellent addition to the knitter's collection.
