Felted Flower from Itty-Bitty Hats

Hi Knitters,
Today I have a clip about the felted flower from Itty-Bitty Hats. It is a flower made out of Manos Del Uruguay wool that is made in layers, sewn together and then felted. Each layer is made in three rows and rows 1 and 3 are both knit all stitches. The second row is the challenging row.
I have had a few questions about row 2 for this flower and that's why I decided to do a quick demonstration. There's nothing better than seeing someone do a technique "in person" to add clarity to the task.
Hopefully this will help.
best, susie

I haven't done that hat yet but I want to. The tutorial helps so much. For example, I don't do socks very often because the kitchner stitch scares me. Well, I finished a pair of booties last night and you guided me through with your tutorial on the kitchner stitch! Thanks for knitting with me last night! ;)

Hi Susan,

Thank you for the great videos!! So much help!!

Can I ask a question about the felted purse.....did you design the pattern or is it available somewhere? I love the shape.

Keep up the GREAT work!!

Hi Diane,
I just made that bag up and it was quite awhile ago so I don't really remember. It is just a standard felted bags and I've seen similarly shaped bags all over. I am sure you could find a pattern out there. It is made out of Manos Del Uruguay yarn.
Good luck,
susan

Thank you!
I think I can figure a purse. I knit alot with Manos, but never felted. I guess it is time to try!

I am not very computer literate and have been trying to figure out how to write you and request the possibilty of a turtorial on the Marley Hat Topper. I just can get the part where you roll up the top pieces and how to put them on the hat.
I have made just about EVERY hat in Itty Bitty Hats and have enjoyed the book and your blog tremendously!!!!! I can't wait to get Itty Bitty Nursery! (I've had it ordered since June!)

Thanks,
Patty

Hi Patty,
How fun to hear about your knitting. Thanks for sharing that. Guess what? The Marley Hat Topper is on my list for tutorials. I just have to knit up a sample to work with. I will try to do this for my next video.
Thanks again,
