Hi everybody!

I am planning to knit a dress for my DD to felt it afterwards, did anyone try this before? I am not sure how I need to choose the size since I never "knitted to felt" before (maybe I should try with a simple project before?)

 

Or would it be easier to felt directly? Like wetfelting - again, how would I choose the size?

 

Every suggestion is welcome!

Maybe someone knows a tutorial?

 

Hugs, Trin

here is a free pattern for a child's felted coat: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/swing-thing

 

Maybe it will provide some helpful information?
