Fabulous Felted Scarves: 20 Wearable Works of Art by Chad Alice Hagen
Felting is hotter than ever, and scarves are fabulous first projects for crafters to try. The simple process yields infinitely varied results, with rich colors, forms, and visual appeal. Created by two internationally-known designers, these 20 spectacular boas, wraps, shawls, and stoles are beautiful, wearable art. Ranging from understated elegance to simply outrageous, they come with easy-to-follow instructions, helpful how-to photos, and templates, when needed. An introduction covers all the basics, and the projects build a repertoire of skills as readers progress through the book. The standouts include a scarf with lacy designs snipped onto the felt surface; a wrap inspired by the delicate hues in Monet's water lily paintings; and a pretty dip-dye novelty yarn party scarf.
