Thanks for the tip!

I washed them and there was no lint problem.  The texture of the yarn changed dramatically, however.. it's considerably less soft and cushy, which makes me v. sad.

I actually can't help you, but I just have to say thanks for posting that link.  There are some beautiful patterns on there that I'd love to try!  That hat will definately be worth the trouble if you can figure it out!

Oh, sheesh.  I suppose I'll just throw them in the wash with everything else and see what happens.

Thank you for the replies!

I don't have the label anymore, and it's actually like 97% acrylic and 3% polyester according to the website, and I know it'll be fine in the wash.  My biggest concern is the lint getting all over everything else, not the FOs themselves.

I would wash these items in a load by themselves, but that is a lot of water wasted.  Not good.  So I'm just wondering if anyone else has done it.

EDIT:  I found the name online.  It's Homespun.  It's in a light blue color, so there are little white wispies all through it.

I have some FOs knitted in Lion Brand.. I can't remember the exact kind, but it's sort of twisty and fuzzy, and nice and soft when knitted.  100% acrylic.  But I'm scared to machine wash it with other clothing because I'm afraid the little wispy fibers will come off and get all over everything else.  Anyone machine washed this yarn with other clothing and had it turn out okay?

TheBon, your instructions actually make a lot of sense.  I'll try pulling it to the back when I do the yo.

Thank you.

I'm sorry.  I didn't word this very well.  This is an example of one of the rows I'm having trouble with:

Row 5 [RS]: k3, ssk, yo, k3tog, yo, k2tog, yo, k5, yo, k1, yo, k5, yo, ssk, yo, sl1-k2tog-psso, yo, k2tog, k3 (31 sts)

So first you yarnover.  Slip a stitch, and the yarn is still in front your work because of the yo.  So then you slip one stitch, and when you're ready to k2tog, the yarn is still in front of your work as well as underneath the slipped stitch.  So when you k2tog, the yarn is carrying from the back to the front of your work resting underneath the slipped stitch, and it wraps to the back again, making a little diagonal wraparound on your slipped stitch.  So my question is, is there any step I'm missing?  Am I supposed to bring the yarn to the back of the work right after I slip the stitch, right before the k2tog?

I hope I clarified.
