I'm soooo happy with this neck warmer (or is it neckwarmer?) It's made with random feather I had lying around, beads, recycled sari silk, reclaimed acrylic from a hideous sweater, and some wool. Basically anything that was in my apartment got put into it. I want to try this same method (or non-method) with some other scarfs...not so sure how it would work out with a hat though...

Behold!

I think that would be a great hat!
A question, how do you put in on? (the neckwarmer, not the hat ... X3)

It's kind of wacky but pretty, which I like. Smiley
I agree- I'd love to see this on a dreary winter day.

OMG I love it!  Is it stretchy enough to put over your head or are there buttons on the back?  If you cared to share a tutorial on how to attach the feathers and how you used the different fabrics, I'd love to try something similar to this one day.

This is beautiful!  I adore feathers, and you've got just a great bunch of colors and textures going on there.  Great job.  I might have to try something like this myself.

It's stretchy enough to pull over your head - what's more is that sari silk will stretch out and not return to its former tightness, so if you are making a hat or something with it, you may want to make it a little smaller than you need.

As for the feathers, I just covered the ends in fabric glue and wrapped silk floss around, leaving a little loop to stick my crochet hook through. This means the feathers have to be prepared a head of time. I'm experimenting with other ways of attaching them though - like maybe with jump rings? We'll see...

That is gorgeous. Stunning. A simple jewel-toned beret or floppy hat would work well with it, imo. I really love the different textures and materials.

Yes, I think I would do a single or two tone floppy hat...don't want to over do it and look like I was attacked by a flock of crazy birds!  Cheesy
