Hi there!

I recently made these for my mother and my little sisterfor Christmas. I got the tut from this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149453.0

My mother has the turquoise ones, my sister the brown ones.





Sorry about the angles and the neck twisting.


I changed some changes to rock_goddess's tut though - I tried tieing them onto elastic, but it was too heavy, so I cut the elastic, and sewed it onto a headband. Makes it a little tricky to put them on if you're not careful, but they still look great, and they don't feel like they'll fall off or anything.

Also, when I was knotting them, I started on my mum's just knotting the ends. Then I realised that made lot of little sticky up bits, and unneccesary mess, so I changed to knotting it in half on the elastic.

If I was to do it again, I would think about knitting it through a beany or head piece, rather than a headband as it can slide to the side and show your own hair... But twisting it up onto your head is pretty cool too.

Thanks for looking!!

I have a question (I want to make some)
Do you have to felt the roving?
If so, how did you do it?

I didn't felt at all - I purchased chunky "colinette point five" from my colinette dealer here in aus. It comes already all fuzzy and chunked.

Smiley  If you want some colinette, check your google site, it should be able to refer you to a local dealer.

I really like your idea of attaching them to a headband.  I love the ones in the original post you linked to, but my hair is too short for falls. Thanks for the inspiration!
