What you need to know

Use simple crochet stitches and pure wool to create Susie Johns' practical place mats, coasters and napkin rings

Felting is the name of the technique that involves deliberately shrinking your project. You'll need a pure wool yarn that is handwash only, then you'll make your project larger than the finished item will be. Pop it in the washing machine with towels or a pair of old jeans to create agitation and use a hot setting. The motion and heat will cause the fibres to matt together and shrink into a dense, hardwearing fabric that's ideal for homewares.


Mat: 24cm x 24cm
Coaster: 13cm diameter
Napkin rings: 8cm (when folded in half)

What you'll need

To make two mats, two coasters and two napkin rings
Yarn: 100% Wool DK, (A) shade Cream four 50g balls; (B) shade Beige, two 50g balls, (C) shade Brown, one 50g ball
Crochet hook: 3.5mm

Make sure your wool is not machine washable or it won't felt
