    The purpose for knoting is to find a reference center to ensure there's a body could be rolled when you poke, while avoid your craft shattered. And the most important is, in this way you can save a lot of time when you"re poking, cuz after knot you almost have a ball, right?

    Way 2. Rolling

    Difficulty: ★★

    Scope:Make needle felted balls or other ball-basic shapes, like heart, oval, cube, cuboid, semi-circle and etc.

    It’s kinda difficult compared to the first way. To avoid body not to shatter, there's one more stitch step when you start to poke, and you'll spend more time on poking than the first way.

    Difficulty: ★★★

    Scope: It can be used to make all of shapes.

    Note:Roll it for a while after pulling

    This method is to achieve prefelt through pull and roll before you start poke. Do you remember the theory of needle felt? Pulling and rolling is essentially no difference with poking. It also can save time, the difficulty is when you start poke, there isn't a body to control, so you have to roll constantly and poke deeply to form the shape.

    All of above is our common ways, do you have any other better methods? Come on to tell us, we'd love to hear it.
