Step 8: Woolery, not jewelry!

When the wash cycle is complete, you should have a felted chain that you can fasten around your neck by pulling as many loops through the end--like a lariat. Once felted, you can shape the loops while still damp, then let dry thoroughly. Wear and be prepared for compliments!

Hi , i love this, and i gonna make one! I love felting and knitting, and i do it often, Nice and good diy! Very clear! I think you can knit it easyer to use a rond knitting needle. If you have setting the stiches on, and you must make the first rond, you pull the rondknitneedle through the earlyer loop and then you knit your rounds. But its a great idea and very cool!

thanks--i used double-pointed needles because there were so few stitches that I would have to stretch them too far on a circular needle--but it might be okay if you can get a short enough circular. Let me know how it works. I'm starting to make these again for fall--to put in my etsy shop or to layer on the necks of my friends!
Hi I 'm knitting my chain jewelry now on only two needles, i have found very thick treah and i hadn't not so thick needles to knit it with four needles, so i make small material and have to sew it by hand together , mayby an solution for others they don't can knit with four needles. When i'm finished i will send you a picture. greetings jet
Hey, Your right, i have try it , but with so few stiches, i don't work, so you have to use more needles. I'm knitting often so i can do difficult things on needles, but this is not the right solution. I have seen on a sight your brachelet version, only knitted, and then if you use a short round knitting needle you can use that, but by this chain not. greetings. I will started now on four needles, i still love your project, its awesome!
I found a great "chain chomp" hat pattern, but was stumped on the chain part. This will look so cool dangling off the back.
