How to make T-shirt Yarn

How to make T-shirt Yarn

By AnnooCrochet Designs






How to make T-shirt Yarn:

Place your t-shirt in front of you, flatten it with your hand to make it neat.

make a cut from one armpit side to the next



place on the flat surface and run your hand over it to flatten it again.
the openings will be on each side.



fold it in half, from bottom to top, the open side will be at the top



flatten again with your hand, to avoid any creases
Take your scissors and begin from the left side's bottom, at about an inch and a half cut from bottom till about an inch and a half from top

 Repeat from left to right at about an inch and a half apart, forming strips, but remember to stop at about an inch from the top each time.

Now open your T-shirt, like a book, it will look like this
gently unfold in a way you could pass your arm through

Grab your scissors again, and place your t-shirt flat in front of you, cut diagonally through the first string,



follow along the strip and cut straight this time between two lanes

alternate this way, cutting once diagonally then once straight

Now pull along the yarn allowing it to take it's yarn form, it will curl on itself thanks to the T'shirt yarn's elasticity.I like to pull the whole yarn twice


 then
roll my T-shirt neatly in a ball, 



and here you go, you just created a T-shirt ball. ready to be crocheted in whatever you wish!!!!
