Wow!

This doesn't look at all like I expected!

Felted Hat experiment


So basically, when the navy yarn felted... it pulled the non-felting yarns in tightly as well...

And left all those loose fly away knots.

Felted Hat experiment

I kind of like it.

Well... most of it!

I'm not too sure about this mohawk of eyelash yarn at the top.

It's a bit too QUIRKY for my liking.

Time to get out the hairdressing scissors, I think!


And if you're wondering about the fluorescent tape on the neck of my mannequin...

Well the beanie came out a little small, so I figured I could stretch it over the head.

I might have been a little rough.

Ah well. I can always add some more paper mache.

What a brilliant technique for creating textured, felted cloth when knitting toys or garments!!!! I can picture areas of man-made fibres incorporated into wool items, either knitted in or simply threaded or knotted in, with or without beads, before felting. If you give a hard tug to the knots on your groovy beanie, are they anchored in tight?

I like how this turned out. (Although I think I'm with you on the Mohawk fringe up top.)
