Break yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through remaining sts, pull to gather and knot.

Weave in ends.
Fill sink with hot water and small amount of liquid soap (hand or dish soap or even shampoo will work). Wearing rubber gloves, submerge Hat and Scarf in soapy water. Rub surface of knit fabric, working over entire surface until sts begin to lose their definition. Rinse gently to remove soap. Allow to dry.

Deer Isle Hat And Scarf Reviewed by Mary Mason on 2013-08-31 *****
Easy little hat to knit. Have felted two projects before but want to stick to easier items. Followed felting instruction exactly - sink, etc. Did use a brush to fluff it up a bit. previously bought a hat form on e-bay. Helps a lot if you like to make hats. Best Part - Bought a leftover skein at Walmart for $5.00 Felting an easy pattern makes something special.May make the scarf and give as a gift for xmas.
