Vintage Velvet #3 - The Untold Story

  • Five skeins Muench Touch Me #3642
  • Jimmy Beans Wool
  • US8
  • Vintage Velvet designed by Lisa Daniels
  • From the book SCARF STYLES
1. A close-up of the finished knitted scarf, before felting and drying:



2. Another shot of the unfelted, undried scarf:


3. Here's the scarf right out of the washing machine after two 12 minute wash cycles (hot wash; cold rinse) in a zippered pillow case with two pairs of faded jeans for balance and agitation:


4. The finished product after 40+ minutes in the dryer and some fan time along the back of our sofa:


5. Same as above:


But all is not perfect in Vintage Velvet Land. Some odd little black bits are working their way out of the felted stitches. I think it's the yarn core showing itself. I'm clipping madly and crossing my fingers

Thanks, Barbara. I'm going to buy some and give it a whirl. For me. So after Christmas and all the attending madness!
