VooDoo Scarf

Knitted and felted. This took a while to do because I first knitted it about 40 stitches, then I crochet the edges. Then I felted it in the machine with an old levi jacket and some tennis balls. Then instead of shaping it wet I just dried it in the machine. So now it's machine washable. But I think it came out nice. All wool and very warm. A little late in the season... but...

I love your voodoo scarf--in fact, all of your freeform pieces! I've always wondered about freeform crochet--does it make for a heavier piece? I'm trying to break our of the 'pattern' box myself.

There are no rules in freeform knitting, and the weight I guess depends on the yarn and the stitch you use. Just start knitting and add a little crochet and a bit of sewing and the next thing you know you have a freeform piece. Lots of trying it this way and that way, for me it just evolves.

Thanks for the kind words.
