What to Make with T Shirt Yarn

If you are new to crochet it might be worth experimenting with t shirt yarn. It is chunky and, therefore, works up very quickly  – giving you great results fast.

T shirt yarn is particularly good if you are a novice crocheter because you can very clearly see your stitches in this big, chunky yarn which makes harder to make mistakes. We love it because it comes in a huge variation of colours including variegated varieties and lends itself to big projects such as rugs, baskets and bags. Big, chunky yarn needs a big chunky hook so you’ll need to pick up a crochet hook that suits the particular yarn you have – the label will always tell you which hook to use.

Beginner Crochet

There are some fantastic projects around if you’re wondering what to make with t shirt yarn and we’ve selected a few of our favourites.

First up is this great circular rug made using two different colours of t shirt yarn. The free pattern for this rug is available on the blog myworldofwool.com here, so why not have a look. We love the great colours they’ve used which makes the rug bang up to date.

We also adore this very cute crocheted vase – perfect for keeping your crochet hooks safe. There is a photo tutorial for the vase on the lady crochet blog here.

 

 

 

 

 

Stool-Cushion-1

 

 

Another great idea is this fabulous, squishy stool cover on the blog Micah Makes. You can find the whole tutorial on her blog – she makes her own t shirt yarn but it will work equally as well with Hoooked Zpagetti or another brand.

If you don’t want to jump right in with a large scale project, how about tackling a smaller make such as these very cool little t shirt yarn bangles by Lilblue which can be found on their blog here with full instructions.

 

 

 

 

Or how about this great shoulder bag which is made using a very on trend vivid pink shade of Hoooked Zpagetti – perfect for the change of season! You can find a link to download the free pattern for this and four other t shirt yarn bag patterns here, enjoy!
