InstructionsI hope to have the instructions for this project available on my Craftsy patern store by Fall 2012.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Cute, Whimsical, Outdoorsy, Funky
Knitting needles, worsted weight wool yarn and roving, Czech glass beads, needle felting tools
What was your inspiration?
Peruvian hats are so much fun! So I decided to try coming up with a knitted and felted chullo with needle felted embellishment. I had yarn left over, so made the mittens too.
What are you most proud of?
I think the set came out very well and it will be entered in this summer's County Fair. We'll see what the judges think about it!
JULY 2012 UPDATE: THE JUDGES MADE ME PROUD BY AWARDING MY CHULLO AND MITTEN SET 1ST PLACE IN THE KNITTED HAT/HAT SET CATEGORY!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You don't have to come up with your own design. If you find a knitted and felted project that you like, I encourage you to experiment with needle felting to add a colorful embellishment to your project.
