Well this is my first post here
I joined shortly before the holidays

Its a simple scarf using stockinette stitch
to get the 3 dimensional bubbles I simpley tied in decorative stones and then felted the scarf

Love it. Very funky and fun. Are you going to model it? I imagine it looks quite interesting when worn.

Looks really cool. So you actually put stones inside the bobbles? How much felting did you do? It still looks quite soft and pliable. Nice colors too.

Do the stones come out afterwards? I would think it would make for a very heavvy scarf unless the stones were pumice.....

Yes once you achieve the level of felting you want and you let it dry you untie the stones and remove them

Really cool scarf! I also like the fingerless gloves you're wearing in your pic, did you make them also?

Welcome to MWK, looking forward to hearing more from you.
