Ive made a few of these for divers people, but only have photos of two. From Pretty in Punk, but slightly altered I made it a bit longer, skipped the crochet edging and dont think I used the same gauge and needle size. It's very lightly hand felted, which I haven't tried before and found it quite hard to find wool that wasn't treated to be machine washable.

Very cool!! I really like the colors in the first one.

I've felted with Brown Sheep Company's Lamb Pride with very good results, just to hep out with the unfindable felting yarn issue.

Happy knitting!

These are really cool! 

This might sound like a silly question, but is it stockinette stitch?  If so how did you get it to not curl up?  (if that makes sense!)

Thank you!  Smiley

Heh, this reminds me of a recent conversation with a friend of mine.

He: So you can knit anything? Like, could you make me a tie?
Me: Well, sure. But you do realize it would be a knitted tie, right? As in, made of yarn?
He: Oh, right. How about a sombrero?

Anyway. Cool ties! :-)

I've not seen that brand in any shops here (UK), but if I knit anything else to be felted I might try purchasing it online. I've only come across two feltable wool brands: Patons Jet which isn't available anywhere near me but is at my Grandmother's local haberdashery, and Twilleys Freedom Spirt which is what I've tried so far.

This might sound like a silly question, but is it stockinette stitch?  If so how did you get it to not curl up?  (if that makes sense!)

It is stocking stitch and does still curl up a bit especially when wearing it for a day. I just give it a hot iron beforehand though to straighten it up. Probably not too good for the wool, I might try a moss stitch  or something at some point.
