Learn to knit while making three adorable felted coin purses. Knit the coin purses first, then hide any mistakes by shrinking them in the washing machine -- kinda like shrinky dinks for adults. The coin purse project is great for brand-new knitteres, but also for experienced knitters trying their hand at felting for the first time.
All of our You Can Knit It! patterns include links to online video and photo tutorials taught by Maggie and her mom, Joan. If you order the pattern as a pdf, the links are embedded right in the file. All you have to do is click on the technique and a video tutorial will pop up in your web browser.
The pattern will teach you: slip knot, cast on, the knit stitch, bind off, weave in ends, seaming and felting.
