I was working on making some coasters actually but couldn't find any pattern anywhere with dimensions and roughly the amount of skrinkage...sooo...I decided to make a bookmark and test shrink the wool. I used Caron Felt-It by the wayin Rose Garden.
I definately won't make my squares with as many stitches cast on as it would be way to long for coasters. But, as a bookmark...it turned out just fine.
I cast on 35 stitches and did garter stitch until my piece was about 3 inches (I forgot to measure exactly). I machine felted. I LOVE it! I can't wait to do my coasters!!
Just had to share my new skill. Have a great week!
p.s. thanks to those who read my blog...Hugs to you all...
