Floral Felted Wool Lariat Necklace

Not many folks are buying wool scarves with Spring just around the corner. But that doesn't mean my fingers are idle during these warmer months!

I designed this knit lariat to resemble floral vines, added some crocheted leaves and pretty rose buds and then used a felted rose pin to hold it together. I am pretty pleased with the results!

This lariat combines knit and crocheted work and felted with 100% wool. The large flower is a pin that holds the lariat together, so the pin can dual purpose when the lariat is not worn. Lariat has 3 leaves and 2 rose buds in a lovely rosey pink.

Perfect for Mother's Day gift!

Lariat measures 26 inches long and you can adjust the neck length by where you position the flower pin. Pin measures 2 inches wide.

I am donating this one to EtsyForCharity, but plan to make more for my own shop.

I would love to hear your thoughts and comments! Please leave me a note on what you think!

That's very pretty. You know if you could make the loop smaller some might even like it for like a head piece for a wedding.
