I'd rather not use wool. I am kind of on a tight budget until after the first of the year. I'll have to use the cheap stuff I have a whole stash of it. I will try using 2 strands instead of 1 thanks for the idea.
Can you felt it without it being wool? How do you felt? Never done it before.
I think I'll just measure the diameter of the handle, and see how many stitches per inch I have, then I should be pretty close to making it the right size, just have to work on length. I also plan to work in the round so no seam, except for the very end which I can tie together.
Thanks again for the help.
