Felted Pincushion

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool

GAUGE:

18 sts + 28 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on Right Side, p on Wrong Side) before felting. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

PINCUSHION
With A, cast on 20 sts. Work in St st until piece measures 10 in. [25.5 cm] from beginning.
Bind off. Fold piece in half and seam 2 sides. Leave remaining side open. Weave in ends.

FINISHING

FELTING

Wash by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. To felt additionally, dry by machine on a regular setting until almost dry. Remove from dryer and pull into shape. Allow to dry completely. For more about felting, click here.

With B, C, D, E, and F, embroider French knots randomly on Pincushion. Stuff Pincushion, then sew remaining side closed.

Felted Pincushion Reviewed by claudia on 2008-08-19 *****
This was a wonderful project to learn how to knit and felt. They make great little gifts. I changed the colors in some and they all came out just adorable, unique and very useful.
