Fulled/Felted Infinity Scarf




FULLED/FELTED INFINITY SCARF

MATERIALS: 1- 100g ball (at least 250m) of soft felting yarn in worsted or light chunky weight.
5.5mm circular needles 32 in.
DIRECTIONS;
LOOSELY cast on 44 stitches. (Note: you can use a provisional cast on to make a seamless join to the circle.)
Row 1 and all odd numbered rows: K1, increase in the next stitch by knitting front and back. Knit to the last 3 sts. K2 tog, K1.
Rows 2 and 4: Knit
Rows 6,8 and 10: Purl.
Repeat these 10 rows until there are at least 2m of yarn left, ending with Row 10.
Cast off loosely. Sew (or join with Kitchener stitch if using a provisional cast on) the cast on and cast off edges together to form a loop.

Directions for Fulling/felting:
Without using soap of any kind, wash your scarf in a washing machine set to “hot wash/cold rinse” and the highest agitation setting available. The idea is not to shrink the fabric to a point where the stitches are completely compacted, but to give the fabric a soft brushed look and a bit more structure.
Remove from the washer after the cycle is complete and pat into shape so that the sides are even.
