This is the only part left of a sweater that got ruined by being washed on too high temperature. It is the turtle neck and I'm going to make a bracelet out of it.

First I trimmed the edges. No need to worry about fraying, the wool is almost like felt because of the high washing temperature. I'm going to plait it.

To add a bit of life to the bracelet I sewed on a piece of lace to one of the strips.

Because my piece of cloth was closed at both ends I needed to straitened it out after every plait, if it make any sense.

With a bit if patience I got the end bit untangled. Sorry about the coffee stain on the table, but I can't work without coffee and I'm clumsy. Sew the ends together inside out.
