Felting by Hand

INSTRUCTOR: SANDY BUZZELLI | 10AM-1PM | $30 + MATERIALS

You’ll never run out of uses for this adorable little felted basket! It's perfect for holding jewelry, keys, business cards or your favorite candy. Tucked near your knitting spot, it's an especially pretty way to keep your knitting notions handy.

The basket knits up very quickly and easily, and felting it by hand gives it a classic, finished look.

You'll be knitting your basket on your own before class meets so that we'll be ready to jump right in to exploring in-depth how to felt by hand (vs. felting in a washing machine).

Please note: felting by hand is a mildly physical activity. It involves standing, bending over a sink, and lifting a large bowl of water. In addition, we’ll be swishing our knitted baskets in hot water for up to 30 minutes (with the opportunity to take short rests if needed). Please be sure you’re physically ready to felt by hand.

Prerequisite: you should know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
