How To Make Yarn From A T-Shirt – T-Shirt Yarn Tutorial · Knitting

Up until a bit ago I was making shopping bags from them (cut off the sleeves, cut off the neck in a scoop and tie shut the bottom, easy!) But you only need so many grocery bags, so this is too cool. Make your own yarn using the old leftover t-shirts that you wear every day, but are seriously showing some wear. This might not be a good thing as in my quest to accumulate the largest stash on the planet, my t-shirt population may become extinct.

This isn't an ultra quick project but it's not as labor intensive as it might seem, and most importantly it will last a lifetime.

Strip Pieced Christmas Stocking - Knitting Crochet Sewing Crafts Patterns and Ideas!

It's is made with our beautiful new Stocking Fat Quarter Bundle, simple white muslin, and thick 100% cotton batting. The patchwork of the stocking is put together in a very cool way by strip piecing. That means you don't have to cut a million little squares and piece them all together one by one. Instead you cut long strips, sew them together and then cut the sewn pieces.

If you've never tried strip piecing this is a great first project since it's so small and satisfying. This is also a great first hand quilting project since the hand quilting isn't trying to be totally tiny or even and it's the hand quilting and the hand sewn binding on this project that really make it special. Materials Cutting the Strips Organize your colored fabrics into two groups, group 1 and group 2. Cut thirty 1 1/2-inch by 22-inch strips from the white fabric. Piecing- Part 2 Quilting. Interweave.

Rather, this is a general post about how to make ribbing without those icky dots, a trick which will be used on the hats in a future installment. RIBBING WITH NO ICKY DOTSthe interplay of texture and color Knitting contains many mysteries. This blog has already tackled one big mystery: why knitting curls (answer here). Today: another great mystery--why knitting in more than one color makes ICKY DOTS in ribbing.

Icky dots aren't confined to ribbing. Part 1: Background We know that changing color in all all-knit fabric such as stockinette yields smooth un-dotted stripes. As you see, this second question really has two parts: When you change a color, you are changing the color in the CURRENT row. This doesn't seem particularly mysterious (even if it IS highlighted in in red) so let's pass onto the issue of... Knittingfool - Knitting Stitch Patterns - Sweater Pattern Generators.

You can double knit a stockinette scarf, and it will lay flat instead of curling. Color knitting will be reversible, showing a negative of the image on the back of the work instead of floats. How is this possible? Double knitting produces a fabric with the right sides showing on both sides of the work. This technique is fun to do and produces a thick fabric that is ideal for winter accessories, hot pads, and there are even patterns for double knit sweaters!

Bandana Cowl

From here I can report that, for men and women alike, this season's prevailing trend in neckwear is the bandana. Jauntily tied around the neck, it tops off everything from Sunday's T-shirt and jeans to Friday's night-on-the-town dress! The bandana is a sassy, casual touch that suggests that the wearer possesses an innate stylishness. It's the perfect accessory for those cool mornings when you've hit snooze a few too many times and need to turn "thrown-together-in-a-rush" into "casually glamourous"! My Bandana Cowl is inspired by my desire to make "effortlessly chic" even more effortless. I chose to make my Cowl out of Swan's Island Bulky, a brand new yarn made from a beautiful blend of undyed merino and alpaca that feels wonderfully soft against the skin.

Glad to have you on the blog today! DW: Thanks for having me! JF: Your design work seems heavily inspired by Scandinavian traditions and culture. Can you tell us a little bit about that? Do you have a family history in that region of the world? DW: There’s definitely a lot of Scandinavian influence, but I don’t have any family background in that part of the world! JF: Can you give me some back story about the design of Sundottir? DW: I knit that old, beloved sweater in 2010. JF: I am always a fan of mixing the modern with the traditional – I think that’s what works so nicely about this design.

DW: Absolutely! JF: Are there any specific details in the pattern that you might like to point out to our readers? DW: Like many of my designs, Sundottir is completely seamless, right down to the underarms. JF: You live and work in Seattle, Washington – are you a native or a transplant? DW: I’m a transplant! JF: As a Washington native, I sometimes miss that! The Woodstock Blanket. I’ve never had to think so much before.

The Woodstock Blanket

As you know, my usual way is to toss a bunch of yarn into a pile, grab whichever one rolls the closest to where I’m sitting, and just start. You know, whatever happens, happens. This time, I made some rules for myself, and it ended up being kind of a headache. It really happened because of this. The yarn happened to land that way when I dumped it on the table (see? I more or less abandoned my plan somewhere between the green and the purple and went back to my usual method of just using the next color that looks good, though I did try to maintain the general move from cool to warm. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to move from one color combination to the next. The stitch pattern I used is a version of the Catherine Wheel, called Harlequin, so named (I guess) because an extra ch1 at the top of the clusters makes them square instead of round. I love that depending upon how I fold it, it looks like a different blanket! Patterns - free patterns - cocoknits by julie weisenberger - StumbleUpon.
