I am really happy with how this finally turned out. I am still seeing in x's hours later. This is made with an organic silk bamboo yarn in green, and the colorway is a silk wool Noro I had left over. I lined it with green felt.








Thanks for looking!

This is soooo cool! Did you use a pattern or was it something you just came up with? Either way it's baller.

Beautiful! What a great way to use Noro! I have a bit leftover in my stash that isn't quite enough for a scarflette or anything like that... hadn't even thought of this application. I've never done needlepoint (I think that's what this is called?) but it certainly looks awesome. I love the color combination and the geometric pattern! Makes me think of the types of patterns you see on Navajo pottery. Really lovely work!

You just have to be careful and use small pieces of noro because pulling it through the canvas is a bit rough on it and it will get thin and break. I counldn't have crocheted a coaster with the small amount it took to do this. I really want to try a whole Noro one, how pretty would it be if all the bamboo yarn was colorway? I did the pattern first so I would finish it then start back at the top to fill it in. It would be legen...... dary....
