Variations on these instructions are provided in the first two books I picked up: The Art of Feltmaking by Anne Einset Vickerey and The Weekend Crafter: Feltmaking: Fabulous Wearables, Jewelry & Home Accents by Chad Alice Hagen. Start by laying out a batt with alternating layers of wool roving. If you want a heavy, thick piece, try using a coarse wool like Jacob or Icelandic. I also wanted it to be fairly thin finished, so I created two layers with my green base color, and then added bits of accent color and silk noil. Four layers of merino will give you a thicker fabric that is still very soft. Pat Sparks also has a great reference chart listing how well various wools felt.

Sorryyy
Having been a wet felter for 12 years I was excited to learn of Chad Alice Hagen's felt work. She is original and has much experience.
Opithris
It's Terrific.
Vozuru
Chad....is there really a need to say anything more? One of the greats in the field of felt. I refer to her books often.
Frlas
Very helpful to beginner felter
Connorise
EXCELLENT step by step process for felting. Useful for beginning as well as intermediate crafters. This makes a terrific reference book.
Arilak
I read this book along with a few others to get some inspiration and learn more about the felting process. While this book is very informative and well written, please be advised that it contains instruction specific to the use of wool batts or roving type material and not yarns. If that is what you are looking for, then this the book for you.

If not, try out:

"Knit One, Felt Too: Discover the magic of knitted felt with 25 easy patterns (Paperback)

by Kathleen Taylor "

I think you will find it a nice beginners guide to felting knit projects.

This is a wonderful book for those who want to learn wet-felting techniques. Wet felting takes a little time, but if you like working with your hands, particularly with warm, soapy water, this book is a good guide. By following her instructions you can make strong, uniform, colorful pieces of felt to use in other projects, or shape the wet wool as you go to make more than rectangles. She describes details such as the kinds of soap she uses and how to layer the wool roving, as well as resist techniques for making bags or mittens. She goes beyond basic techniques, too, offering ideas for using felt in different ways. I made a few of the projects and was really inspired to make more. For a quick look at wet felting, this is a fantastic resource.
This book is really well organized and has some wonderful-looking projects to try. However, as a complete beginner I ran into trouble and didn't find much advice in the book about what I might be doing wrong. If you have some basic experience with feltmaking I think you would like this book because it has a bunch of simple, nifty projects that would make wonderful gifts.
