Last week I shared a picture of another project I'm working on for my friend and cosplayer Ashley-Rae. Little wolf cosplay
The cowl is made by weaving and plaiting yarn to create a really dense fabric.
I then crocheted into this neck piece to widen it. I had made lots of plaits in different widths and intended to sew these together to form the main body of the piece. As I started to crochet the top I came up with a better idea. I created a full base of crochet with open parts in which I could sew in the plaits.
I decided to re make it and simplify it slightly and write a pattern.
So far I have the top part re-done and I've taken step by step photos. I have also recreated all the base pieces and so I just have the plaits to re-make and to sew together. I think the pattern should be ready by the end of the week.
In other news this week I have completed three magazine commissions a have continued to work on my larger commissions of the blanket and rug.
