Resist Felting Scarf Knitting Pattern

Designed by Barbara Breiter

Felt Scarf Knitting Pattern

Try this very different knitting pattern for a felted scarf! By wrapping sections of the scarf before it's felted, those sections resist felting because they are not exposed. Vary the intervals and the width of each section that is wrapped to create different looks.

Finishing Felt Knit Scarf

Weave in ends.
Gather a section of the scarf together. Wrap it tightly with twine, a yarn that won't felt, or rubber bands. Be sure all of the section is covered completely. You may wrap the sections straight across or at an angle. Choose the intervals and the width of each wrapped section; remember, these sections will not felt.

Felt
To felt, throw it in the washing machine with a pair of jeans or old canvas tennis shoes. Do not use towels as the lint can embed in the project. If you have a zippered lingerie bag, place it in the bag. Use hot water and a small amount of detergent. Check after 3 minutes and continue the wash cycle if needed, checking every 2 minutes. When felted, rinse in cool water, shape, and dry flat.
