It's IMPERATIVE to get as much of the 'air' out of it as possible when you are creating a little shape. I don't use a different core wool, or anything inside, - I simply needle felt the merino wool tops into the shape I need...

Here's my quick and simple guide to needle felting 3D shapes, which accompanies my recent free live tutorial on YouTube.

How To Make My Easy (FAST) Extreme Crochet Cushion Using ' Wooltops ' Yarn

Giant Knitting or Giant Crochet (also referred to as Extreme Knitting and Extreme Crochet) is now - understandably - very popular. Making woolly snuggly oversized blankets and home accessories to cozy up to, is definitely a worthwhile cause and let's face it, look inviting, textural and not to mention rather chic too :-)

I've designed this cushion project which only takes 500g of Wool Tops, and is SUPER FAST to make! (No really - I'm talking about half an hour to crochet the front - if that!) Read on...

My latest Bobble Cowl & Hat (or : How to become a Human Brussel Sprout)

My latest Bobble Cowl & Hat (or : How to become a Human Brussel Sprout)

Not content with the 1023 knitted hats and scarves I own and wear, I saw this cowl pattern and had to make it with our Mrs Moon Super Chunky in Angelica Green! The cowl has knitted nobbles which look remarkably like Brussel Sprouts if you choose the green like me! And the hat is made to match with the rest of the 2 skeins and is a super fast knit (can knit it in an hour or so!) I am now a human Brussel Sprout, but that's ok as I love those little green nuggets! :-) Alternatively make both the hat and the cowl with 1 x 200g skein of our Gilliangladrag Holy Fluff Hand Dyed...
