Spaced-Out Felted Scarf Staff Projects

This gallery came about when Liz Gipson (managing editor of Handwoven and Knitting Daily TV cohost) came bounding into the Spin-Off office (well, truth be told, she scooted on her chair through the doorway that separates our offices) to show me a scarf made with handspun singles and using Jane Patrick’s draft for a Spaced-Out Felted Scarf. One thing led to another—and suddenly (with Jane’s blessing) we were posting a quickie challenge in Ravelry’s Rigid Heddle Group to see what others would do with the same pattern. Several people were able to complete the challenge within the teeny-weeny window of time that we gave them—you can see the results in the Winter 2008 issue of Spin-Off along with Jane Patrick’s pattern. In the Interweave office, Liz Gipson, Stefanie Berganini (Spin-Off assistant editor), and Liz Good (Fiberarts assistant editor) were inspired to make their own versions—which are featured here.
