If using a substitute yarn your project may felt to a different size, you may also have problems with the knitting pieces pockets etc felting shut. This can be avoided by putting plastic bags inside the project during felting.

With my clear and detailed instructions, (3 pages)which cover knitting and then felting and finishing your pouch, once you’ve made one you will be sure to want more.

SUITABLE FOR- Confident beginners or Intermediate knitters. If you can do stocking stitch and follow a pattern I explain the rest as you go along.
