DIY – woolly braided scarf

January 16, 2012
I bumped into a few images on the internet that got me thinking I could use them as inspiration for the 10 ounces of brand new vintage pure wool I had found at a charity shop in Oxford last year.

I knitted a lot last Winter but because of some strain due to heavy and repetitive computer usage I haven’t picked it up this year, but it was time I’d do something with that beautiful vintage thread I had lying around:

It was really easy to make: I just took the strands of wool and braided them and as they weren’t made into a ball it was a lot easier, as I didn’t have to cut it one by one.

Then I made two pompoms, using a breakfast cereal cardboard box for the circles (it always comes in handy for these projects!). If by any chance you never made pompoms as a kid here is a simple tutorial.

So after one Women in Revolt and one One Day later, this is what I got:

Here’s a quick photo of what it looks like on taken with the webcam.
Overall a very simple project to be made in one afternoon.

    Fiz este colar para uma colecção da minha marca. Antes tinha feito uns com cabelos entrançados, também muito giros, mas mais conceptuais. Estes de lã são óptimos para o Inverno, gosto muito! 😉
