Malabrigo Mini Collection from Welts & Waves by Adrienne Larsen

This entry was posted on 18th December, 2015 .
As the name of the book indicates, Welts and Waves by Adrienne Larsen, is an all about experimenting and playing with Welts, a technique that can achieve very interesting results. The pattern that most caught my attention is this gorgeous blanket. Sunburst is a very appropriate name, don't you think?

Adrienne takes you on a journey, where you can start out with something really simple, like a Marianas headband, to try out the technique, and then maybe move on to felted slippers, to see how welts behave when being felted.
