Felted Buttonhole Clutches

My normal pattern. Double strands of Cascade 220 and Paton's Classic Merino.

I was unable to locate glass pony beads locally, so decided to try the plastic ones and much to my surprise, they worked out well, and were MUCH cheaper. Got them at Michael's in a mixed bag of colors.

Felted after one complete cycle. including the spin and rinse.

These are destined for my grandaughters. Posted by Picasa

Middle: My normal toe up dutch heel with grafted cast off.

Right: Maple Leaf pattern from Jeanie Townsend. Knit top down. Posted by Picasa
