Overview

In Knitting Never Felt Better, beloved Vogue Knitting author and needlework artist Nicky Epstein brings her passion for embellishment and texture to the art of felting. Using ten chic garments and more than 150 stunning sample swatches as examples, she covers the top techniques for turning wool, alpaca and cashmere yarns into vibrant and dense textures. Before and after shots show how different fabrics react to the process, and there are patterns, stitches, and techniques for lace, mosaics, cables, plaids, checks, and quilting.

Create bobbles, appliqués, and ruffles; combine yarns; and use clamps, marbles, cords, braids, and more to form three-dimensional shapes in the felt. Also included in the volume are Epstein’s unique ideas for transforming old clothes and accessories to create new and wearable designs. An array of attractive home décor projects completes this collection beautifully. Choose this gorgeous hardcover edition for a lasting gift.

Booklist has said of Epstein’s previous titles “[S]o useful and lush… inviting and so easy to use.” It’s easy to see why this knitting guide has become a selection of the Crafter's Choice Book Club.
