I made a felted necklace which I'm pretty happy with.  I used mostly Frog Tree alpaca wool, plus a little left overs which were super wash wool, so they didn't felt as nicely.  I like the effect though, so that's okay.  The icord felted up to abou 1/4", so its not too thick. 

The backs of the circles aren't as nice as the front, so I might put some fabric on the back.  And maybe add a few tiny beads to the circles to dress it up a little.  I'm pretty happy for my first attempt at a necklace.  I think I'll do another, but the circles will be double sides and bigger.

that's cute--it would be great if you could post directions....

so how many stitches was the I-cord? what size needles? how'd you make the balls? and I'm guessing you just attatched another length of yarn to the I-cord and knitted out the little branch?

this would be an awesome way to use up some of my wool scraps.  (I have a ton of them.)  hmm...  I could always use more accessories   Grin

I want for nothing these things.

The icord was three stitches on a #3 needle.  The circles were made using the small leaf pattern on page 62 of Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation, also #3 needles.  Also, I knit a hole in the icord to slip the necklace through, like a keyhole scarf.  Just increase your icord to 4 stitches, and then knit two icords, 2 stitches wide, with two different pieces of yarn.  When the hole is big enough, join the two icords together and decrease one stitch.
