Heart Felt Knits: 25 Fresh and Modern Felting Projects

Heart Felt Knits: 25 Fresh and Modern Felting Projects
By Tamara Mello
Published by: Chronicle Books

Reviewed by Caitlin Eaton, Editor for AllFreeKnitting


To answer your first question: yes, that is "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks on the cover. Aside from modeling a few of the patterns in fellow actress Tamara Mello's gorgeous book of felted knits, Hendricks also wrote a heartwarming forward for the book where she explains her friendship with the author and what kniting means to her.  

As we traveled deeper into the book, we were delighted to find a variety of felted patterns both to wear and to use as decorations.  From glamorous wearables, like the bold ruffled scarf shown on the cover of the book, to the 1920s-inspired cloche on p. 24, you will find patterns to please both the family and the home in this charming collection of knits. Not familiar with felting?  That's not a problem; Heart Felt Knits also includes a written tutorial that breaks down the process, step by step.  Treat yourself to a few felted platters and coasters, perfect for adding a handmade touch to the home — and for your next party!  Allow yourself to be pampered; throw on a pair of felted slippers from p. 81 or admire how chic your new hand warmers from p. 133 look with your new outfit.  No matter what pattern you decide to cast on first, you're going to love using yarn and needles to create a unique work of art.
