Long Skinny Scarf

 

 

 

 


I'd been wanting to make a long, skinny scarf...

...that could be wrapped several times around my neck...

...so that it would stay on more easily.

I liked the wool/yarn/fabric combination that I used in my last scarf...

...so I decided to do another 'riff' on it.

I laid out a grid of wool batt pieces...

...then yarn...

...then the long fabric strip (which I pieced in the center to get my desired length).

I wrapped the wool around the edges of the fabric, all around...

...then felted it in the usual manner.

I am happy with the way the yarn 'boings' out here and there...

...and how the synthetic gauzy fabric ruched up lengthwise.

Note: the burgundy wool is not as pink as it looks in the finished photo.

Thanks, girls!

Kim-I love it that when people admire the wonderful yarn in it, I get to tell them about my special
Dutch friend!
