BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Thursday, 3 February 2011
Last week I launched a new pattern (and forgot to blog it, bad blogger!) ~ Wee Dwellings... available in the Etsy shop.

From the listing:

The wee ones need homes, too!

It's a toy, it's a toy box, it's a pouch, it's lots of natural fun, embellished any way you like it!

Our Wee Dwellings are so much fun~ perfect for travel and play, for toddlers and bigger kids, too.

Fully customizable from the size, colours, roof shape, theme and more. With or without a handle... you decide!

This 9 page tutorial is full of tips, pictures and clear, easy to follow directions for the newbie or the veteran. More than just a knitting pattern~ learn to full/felt and needlefelt, too.

Knit, felt, embellish, have fun!

This tutorial requires/ uses the following skills:
Knitting (includes K2T, Magic Loop Cast on and Magic Loop on circular needles)
Felting (complete instructions included for sink and machine wet felting ~ technically called fulling when making felt with a knitted item).
Needlefelting (instructions for creating flat and 3D embellishments included with complete picture tutorial)

Materials required:
wool yarn (worsted or other)
circular needle (size 6/7 US)
wool roving or other embellishing materials
 They are lots of fun and a great way to learn new techniques if you have been wanting to try felting but hesitant to take the leap! ♥
