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.

If you're a knitter interested in felting, this is the book for you. It is filled with different patterns and swatches. It has samples of felted yarns - before and after - including Lorna's Laces, Nashua Handknits and Plymouth Yarns. There are two pages on the felting process which include how-to's such as putting the felted pieces in a mesh laundry bag and stopping the wash cycle every few minutes to check the process of your felting. Some pieces need to go through several wash and spin cycles to be complete. "A general rule of thumb is that the knitted piece will shrink by about one-third." Some colors may fade in the process but this depends on the yarn. "Stockinette and garter stitch are best suited for felting, because most stitch patterns are lost in the process."

The book is filled with different swatches that can be used in the felting process as well as several patterns. These include single color and multi-colored examples. The Floral Coat is beautiful but I think it's beyond my skill level. "This loose-fitting felted coat with tapestry floral motifs is embroidered in duplicate stitch and has I-cord closures and buttons." The book also includes many embellishments that can be added to patterns to make them individual and unique.

The Green Fair Isle Bag is lovely. It is a large size with two compartments in the front. The compartments are done with a Fair Isle technique. The book even touches on sculptural felting and shows a bowl with several types of fruit in it, all felted.

If you want to try felting, this book is the way to go. Personally, it scares me a bit but I plan to try some of the embellishments and see what happens. I'm always worried that my felting will not fit to size.

This was an excellent book, good interesting projects and description of various techniques. Required to write more words but knitting is my passion, not book reviews!
