"Woven Lattice" Pre-Felt Infinity Scarf

Laying out mauve merino roving for a pre-felt.



Cutting strips of green and mauve pre-felt to size. 


"Weaving" strips to form a lattice...

..."over-under, over-under"...like in Girl Scouts! :)
 
Wetting out the project...

 
...and gently felting it...

 
...and fulling it.

 
The finished scarf (here, as 'picket fence')...

 
...and opened up.

 
My middle daughter picked this color combination...

...when I was beginning a Christmas gift for a dear family friend.

Using strips of pre-felt and no stitching with nylon thread this time...

...I 'wove' a lattice, and carefully felted it into one continuous loop.

It's large enough that it can be twisted and pulled over the head a second time...

...or allowed to hang long and loose for a cowl.

Bardzo fajny efekt. Przypomina mi tory kolejowe lub kolorowy płotek w naszym ogrodzie . Pozdrawiam

Thank-you, Karolina!

So the prefelt turned from orange to purple after felting? either case the finished product looks great!

Rachel said...

That will make a lovely, textural accent for a winter/spring outfit! All we need now is the Spring...!

Sandie Knapp said...

Wow, look how the colors change after felting? It doesn't look like the same one at all after fulling. Verrry interesting! :)

Well that looks like a bit of fun!

That turned out great! Loving the use of prefelts.

Vivian--No...it was actually a mauve color, but I think it 'read' a bit lighter in the layout phase. :)
Rachel--So true! It's so cold again here, today.
Sandie--It changes a lot because it started out really thin this time.
MarmePurl--It was! :)
Andrea--Thanks!
