| 9 | Leave your knitwear to soak for a little while. I'd say 5 mins is enough if it hasn't had intensive wear. If your scarf has been worn for an entire winter or with perfumes etc. It might need longer, up to 10 mins.

| 12 | After a couple of minutes, drain off the water again and press out any excess water. TIPYou'll see I'm not wearing any gloves, I don't like wearing rubber gloves as I think they can be a little abrasive to the knitwear. But if you have sensitive skin wear the kinds of washing gloves that don't have grips on the fingertips.

| 13 | Lay out your towel on a flat surface, you might need to double it over as it will become soaked through quite quickly. Place your scarf flat on the towel. If your towel isn't long enough for your scarf, fold the scarf over on itself. Shape it as you go, meaning that make sure your scarf edges are straight.

| 14 | Roll up the edge of the towel, so that the scarf and towel are sandwiched as you go- a bit like a wooly Swiss roll!
