The cool thing about wool is that when you put it though the dryer it felts it so that you can cut the sweater without finishing the edges. I decided to take advantage of this felted sweater and make hooded infinity scarf and leg warmers with this sweater. I was lucky that this was a cowl neck sweater so I could make the hood out of the cowl neck. If you have a sweater that you would like to felt (it needs to be wool or cashmere) you can run it through the washer and dryer a few times.
