I was hoping to post a picture of my last project (felted yoga mat bag), but ack, I flaked. I had such trouble with it, but it turned out GREAT, thanks to this forum (especially Ingrid)!
One success in, I decided to try another felted pattern, from Knitted Accessories: A Knitter’s Bible. The Mighty Mitred Squares scarf on page 86. It says this will be “fulled,” and I found the threads here about fulling. However:
The pattern calls for chunky yarn, but in order to get the gauge right (16 sts, 20 rows = 4"), I have to drop the needle size to a US 6, which seems really wrong for something that’s going to be felted. Also, the measurements for the piece only drop 1/2" (6" wide completed, 5.5" wide after fulling).
