Felted Tapestry Crochet Tutorial

For those of you who like to crochet loosely – felted tapestry crochet is for you – since it’s done with a large hook and loose stitches. The finished pieces shrink and felt like magic in a washing machine.

What’s so great about felted tapestry crochet? The pattern is incorporated into the fabric as it’s crocheted, the extra yarn adds bulk so that no lining in necessary, and felting the piece in a washing machine is a cinch.

The Felted Amulet Bag project featured in this video is a great introduction to tapestry crochet. The free instructions are linked on my tapestrycrochet.com web page. For more about felted tapestry crochet, please look at my Bead & Felted Tapestry Crochet book. One thing I forgot to mention in the video, though, is that you need to set the washing machine for a cold water rinse (after the soapy, HOT wash). Sorry about that! I hope you’ll give felted tapestry crochet a try!
