Triangle Nuno Scarf

I saw a Knit triangle Scarf that looked interesting and thought I could do that with nuno felt.

If you would like to knit it here is the link. It is available in several languages. http://alpis-farbenrausch.blogspot.ca/p/strickanleitunen.html

I wasn’t sure of the finished length but I was thinking about 6 feet.  I cut a piece of silk 4ft by 8 ft. and then cut that corner to corner to make 2 scarves.

I cut the slits first, inserting resists to make sure they holes stayed open.

The first layer of wool was one of my own batts that I split in to thin layers.

Then more colours, well shades of purple mostly

Then I added some silk top and throwster’s waste. Mostly purples again and I used some turquoise for pop.

6 feet seems to be the right length. I think you could do it a bit smaller if you wanted or if you are petite.

All in all I am very pleased with it. I may iron the folds in to it but I haven’t decided yet. I will add a picture on the mannequin a little later. I don’t want you all to be waiting for the post, thinking I have forgotten about you.

Here is the scarf on the mannequin.

    It’s beautiful Ann!

  2. Frances says:

    Very nice – I like the slits in it – how large did you make them?

    • Thank you Frances. I made the holes 3 inches and they probably lost 1/2 and inch. I think I would make the bottom 2 smaller next time. they do not end up with as much fabric in them.

    I think it’s going to look fabulous – what a great idea!

    Interesting Ann, I saw the same scarf and had the same idea as you, i.e. to make a felted scarf. Yours turned out very nice. I like the colours and would like to see it on you or on a manequin..

    • Thank you . It doesn’t lie the same as the knit one. It doesn’t have the same weight. I will probably end up ironing the folds in. The pictures of it on the mannequin are up now.

    Just gorgeous. Blues and purples are my favorite palette. Just starting out with nuno. Do you use 8mm silk chiffon? Could you recommend some sources for purchasing silk? Thank-you.

  6. Really lovely! You’ve inspired me to get back to felting Asap and give this a go!

    Really fabulous, I love the colours and the idea of threading a scarf like that.

    Gorgeous scarf Ann. I love the colour combo and it looks great on the mannequin. What a good idea to have those slots to keep the drape in place.

    Thanks for the link to the knitting pattern – since my felting mojo has gone walkabout, I think I’ll make the knitted version. 🙂

    Just seen the additional photos Ann – beautiful!

    They are beautiful Ann, and such a neat idea.

    Love it Ann!. I do think it would look great if you ironed the pleats in. Very posh 🙂

  12. Sylvia Lee says:

    What a beautiful idea and a lovely drape.

  13. That is just beautiful – and such a clever idea!.

    Just love how your nuno scarf turned out! Very stylish to use the pleats in a draped fashion. Do you think the slits will need reinforcement?

    • Thanks, I think the holes will be fine. I did make sure there was wool raped around to the back through the holes. I think if it was just wool it would need some stitching but with the silk it should be fine.

    Great idea and gorgeous outcome. I love the scarf and the colors!
