How long does it take to felt something (never done it), i swear I restarted my washing machine 4 times already, and my hat still looks the same except for a fact that its wet.
Thank you in advance..
It depends ont he yarn and the washing machine i am afraid. Some times i can take a full cycle some times just half. Persevere though, there is point where it will go form looking like a soggy lump to suddenly felted. make sure it is on a good hot setting though! - no delicate cycle for this job!
Thank you guys..Newbie2Knitting, I dont know lol. I threw away the label, all I remember its by red heart.. But I actually gave up on it.. 3 hours in a washing machine and there is no difference... Oh well it was my first "practice" hat anyways...
What I found out is that I had to leave my knitted purse in the wash for the entire cycle. At first I did what the instructions say which is leave it in the wash cycle for 15 mins and check then repeat. I found out that didn't work. Sometimes I have to do 1 1/2 wash cycles. That was for a purse 12 inch x 9 done in garter stitch.
