From Publishers Weekly
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.
