Plant dyed yarn

Months ago I got these beautiful skeins of plant dyed yarn from my friend Sofie. I was stunned by the vivid colours, and thought long and hard about what I wanted to use them for.

First I decided to make a pot holder. I crochet two similar sized rounds and stitched them together.

Next, I felted it in the washing machine. Super simple and fun to make! Perfect gift as well.

Lately I've seen a lot of basic weaving techniques on Pinterest, and I was really inspired to try circular weaving (just google it, there's loads of tutorials out there). I used the wonderful plant dyed yarn and paired it up with whatever yarn leftovers I had at home - turquoise and purple.

I'm so happy with the outcome, it's feels very Mayan inspired colourwise. Do try this! It's so easy and very, very fun.


  1. Åh, vad fint det blev! Hade jag en smula av ditt tålamod vad gäller pyssling hade jag varit så lycklig... =)

  2. Men tack! Fast mitt tålamod är helt obefintligt, haha! :)
