How to knit a t-shirt rug!


Rating: 4
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.

First we are casting on using a waste yarn, then we are casting on around the cable of a circular needle. When using the circular needle you can easily afterward just pull the needle through to knit position and start working the sts for a hem, cuff, border etc.

Stretchy Swing Needle Bind Off (combination style) by Tillybuddy


Rating: 5
A demonstration of a (new?) stretchy bind off using a ‘swing needle’ technique to introduce twist into the bind off to make it stretchier. The sample shown is knit ‘combined’ where the knits are wrapped anticlockwise and the purls clockwise to get the stitch mount shown in the video. If you knit ‘standard’ wrapping knits and purls anticlockwise adjust the cast-off method by doing a ssk (to remount the 2nd knit stitch) and then swing round and do the p2tog as shown in the video. I am not sure if this is a new bind off or if I have just rediscovered it, but let me know if have come across anything like it before. It works for ribbing, and lace that needs to be stretched out when being blocked. When binding off in the round, transfer stitches to a circular needle and bind off from this with a DPN. Keep the non working end of the circular out of the way of the DPN as you swing it round while binding off. Trying to bind off in the round from DPNs is difficult as the last DPN gets in the way of the swinging needle when the stitches on the first DPN are being bound off. It may take a bit of practice, especially in the round but keep it loose (I’m a tight knitter) and the effect is very stretchy.
