Greetings this is my first post. So thanks in advance for your help.
I just finished knitting “Dot” a Berrocco felted bag Pattern. Pattern book: 251. I used Ultra Alpaca, as specifcied in pattern. You can see it at: http://www.berroco.com/247.254/251/251_dot_pv.html
I ran it through the wash according to felting instructions, looks and measures the right size. Wool is dense and I can’t see stitches but…
- How do I get the wool to look nice an smooth like the pattern. It is really fuzzy, I mean really fuzzy.
- How do I get a nice shape. The pattern said to put a 8" diamater mixing bowl in to the bag while it was drying, but I could only get a 5" bowl in and it sure doesn’t have the shape in the picture. Any ideas on shaping?
