Here are some tips on how to felt your knit projects on the stovetop instead of using a washing machine. This is especially helpful if you have a front-load washer since they often do not create enough agitation.
In this example I am felting a knitting project called Gnome Home by Tiny Owl Knits. These are cute felted point protectors for your double-point needles or circular needles. They also make great stocking stuffers!
How I made my Gnome Home pattern:
Supplies needed for project
Pattern: Gnome Homesby Tiny Owl Knits
Yarn: Ultra Alpaca Light in your choice of colors (I used colors in my stash)
Knitting Needles: Knitters Pride Dreamz US #8s or in size needed to maintain a loose fabric for felting. You can use DPNs or circulars with the Magic Loop method.
Tapestry needle: Chibi darning needles for weaving in ends
