i made these as a Christmas pressie for a knitting mad friend at work. this is the first time i had tried this particular technique but i think they work quite well though i suspect practice is needed to get the 'stitches' a little more even. i baked each 'knitted' piece on a cocktail stick then trimmed the stick and wedged on a pearl bead to make the needle and tied on tread to hang them.
my favourite of the two (an unfinished purple scarf)
use a clay extruder gun to get even strands in your chosen colour.
lay two strands as shown below
gently twist the strands. the tighter the twists the tighter the 'stitches'. twists the strands in opposite directions.
place the strands side by side matching twists to create stitches.
repeat to create the desired number of strands. place two sets of strands side by side matching the twists.
once the knit is the desired length i weave a few strands at the bottom to neaten it. either then tim or leave strands to create tassles as for the scarf.
this is why you need to leave a loop at the top. thread a cocktail stick through each loop making sure each twists in the same direction
shape and bake .
trim one end of the cocktail stick. you can either do this before baking and add a ball of clay to the end to make the needle or tightly wedge/glue a bead after baking.
