Chain Link Scarf- 2nd try!

I finally finished all my links on my chain link scarf & felted it, but I'm not sure what I think of the results.... Anyway, here's how I did it, maybe yours will turn out better!

1. Loom Knit i-cords or knit your favorite "cord" with 100% wool, or any other felting yarn... Make a sample size, then knit away, connecting each other into rings.

2. Keep going!! The length needs to be at least 2 times longer than the end result should be.

3. Felt in the washing machine by washing on the hottest setting with a couple of pairs of jeans for agitation. Repeat if necessary...

4. Enjoy!

My scarf before felting was 159 inches long, after felting, 77 inches long....
