Felting this easy bag is a great beginner project! It introduces knitting in the round, reading a pattern, stitch consistency and some basic finishing tech-niques. The other beautiful part of a felted project is that all of the tension blunders and mistakes real-ly do “work out in the wash”. You have likely felted something all ready. The really good sweater that got thrown in the machine and came out fitting the cat was felted. Try this- it is lots more fun when you plan on shrinking your item.
