Warning: felting novice
Anyway, I used the recommended yarn and needles, and I washed it twice in hot water (front-loading machine) and it isn't really felted much. You can't see from the picture, but the felting is irregular, with patches that are felted and patches that show the stitches very well. Do I just need to wash it more times? I really like this size box, since it fits CDs so well, but I want to figure out how to uniformly felt things before making a bunch more.
So to answer your question: just keep washing it until it's the feltiness you want (unless you like the size it is now - if that's the case, forget it).
I felted a bag out of Cascade 220 and it came out much like yours looks, although it is evenly felted and you say yours is not.
