Knitting with t-shirt yarn
Knitting is the new crochet is a running joke at Hoooked. But we have to admit: only after three successful crochet books with mostly crochet patterns, we started to focus on knitting with our t-shirt yarn. With some help of a knit pro, started to cast on and mastered the basic knitting stiches, such as knit stitch and purl stitch. With these two knitting stitches one can create very different textures. Our conclusion is that learn to knit is not difficult and it comes with a lot of bonuses. Knitting puts your hands and mind at work at the same time, leading to a state of Zen. Knitting therefore reduces our stress levels. And last but not least: knitting is super satisfactory: once you have completed your first knitting project, you will glow with pride! Hoooked recycled t-shirt yarns are super bulky and will create great results in a short time frame. Cotton yarn and t-shirt yarn are both ideal for the novice knitter as these yarns works fast and enable you to make stylish DIY projects. On our website you can find various super-fast knitting patterns. We have done our utmost to make clear instructions with easy-to-follow knitting illustrations. With these knitting patterns for fabric yarn, you will be able to knit a beautiful hat, an infinity scarf, and a cable knitted pillow or even a giant knit pouf. If you are a novice knitter we advise you to consider knitting a scarf as your first project as your tension will often tighten as your knitting skills improve. A scarf is a long straight piece of knitting to practise your knitting techniques and if your tension (gauge) tightens up, it will not show very much.
