I just went to my LYS this weekend and bought a pattern to make a felted bag. The owner (who I adore) helped me get everything I would need to make it. I’ll be making it with Malabrigo yarn - the owner told me to hold this thin sock yarn with it just to add support to it and give it a bumpy feel when I felt it. I’m good with all that - the pattern called for size 15 needles - got them.
I got home and looked and I dont care for the pattern as much as I do for the pattern “Ayla” on Knitty - the backpack. I’m not going to do the flower but make it solid but I like the shape of that bag - but that pattern calls for 10 1/2 needles.
So now, I’m confused. Should I still use the 15’s or use the 10 1/2? Is it possible to have it too loose or too tight when felting a project? I guess that’s my main question. Help! I really want to get started on this.
