Sewn cowls

These two cowls are made by sewing yarn instead of knitting or crocheting it. I really love the way it preserves all the texture of the yarn, and the way I can hook strands over my ears directly to keep them warm!

The top one is made of my handspun yarn, and the bottom was my prototype with storebought yarn.

Instructions: I wound the yarn into a good cowl circumference, then basically spread out point of it between layers of tissue paper. Pinned it down, sewed a long line perpendicular to the yarn. One more on the other side. Tore off the tissue paper. Done!
