Recycle your favorite t-shirts. T-shirt rugs are a very satisfying first project-they work up quickly, look neat, and are machine washable. You can use them as rugs, placemats, dog bed liners, even sew two together and make a pillow case. This is in instructional video focusing mainly on making the yarn, since the pattern is pretty well. The pattern is as follows-cast on 38-50 stitches depending on desired width anddd knit all of them. This is called garter stitch, and it is very simple. If you cannot knit, do a search on how to knit videos. I would love to show you, but I can’t get my camera to focus that well. Supplies needed: 1 pair of fabric scissors, size US 19 (15mm) circular knitting needles, 10-25 t-shirts depending on the size and how large your rug is going to be. Remember, make sure they are beyond being donated! Distorted a bit with the upload, sorry.

    Great and helpful video. Totally annoying background music. I had to mute it, as it made it impossible to concentrate

    Wow I never thought about knitting t-shirts before. I wonder if I cut the strips a little thinner if this would be a good material to make summer caps out of……….. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Oh yeah, and it’s easily washable, since it’s t-shirt material anyways.

Tell me what you're thinking...
