Thanks to the magic of felting, you have the opportunity to create two different scarves in one pattern, just varying the color. Even if two scarves are knitted from a similar mixed yarn (mohair / wool), the process of felting occurs in different ways, resulting in two completely different scarves of different sizes.

Insert the wooden cork as shown in the illustration.

Before removing the elastic bands and removing the plugs, thoroughly dry the scarf.
These frames, taken before and after felting, demonstrate the technique of creating lovely three-dimensional flowers. Tie the flower petals separately and sew them in place after fixing the wooden balls. When sewing on a flower, do not tighten the thread tightly and retreat about 6 mm from the elastic, so that there is free space around the flower and after felting you could easily remove the balls.
