Learn intarsia with an easy project: a mug mat. The heart motif is perfect for learning. This low-risk project makes a terrific hostess or housewarming gift!

You’ll need two colors of a wool, worsted-weight yarn. Be sure not to use a superwash yarn; you want it end up felted!

No need to use a washing machine for the felting. Simply buy a plastic washboard, and you’re all set.
