What’s it all about?
Love crocheting and up-cyling and want a cool project that joins both? Jump on the t-shirt yarn train and crochet all sorts of cool projects, from baskets to rugs or pillows. T-shirt yarn is made out of fabric leftovers and you can make your own using old t-shirts or clothing items too damaged to give to opportunity shops. Join us and learn two skills in one class!
What will we cover?
This class has two parts:
- How to make your own t-shirt yarn out of old t-shirts. You can use this yarn to make rugs, crochet, knit, macramé and do all sorts of other crafts.
- Once we have our yarn ready, we’ll learn the basics of crocheting round projects using magic circle, single crochet and slip stitch.
What will you need?
- A crochet hook (8 or 9 mm works best but whatever you have at home)
- Few t-shirts or rugs you have lying around (or t-shirt yarn which you can purchase at any craft store)
