Customers often ask what to make with t-shirt yarn. Lucky for you we have several great ideas. Bags are the first thing that comes to mind and each skein of Be Sweet T-shirt yarn comes with a pattern printed on the label for a "Honeycomb Camera Clutch." Tote bags would also be amazing and the stretch of the yarn means they could hold all sorts of things. At TNNA, where we first saw and ordered the t-shirt yarn, I was inspired by a necklace one of the women had made from it. There wasn't a pattern for it so I've recreated it and written the pattern out for you. This knit necklace knits up in 20 minutes and you can make 2 - 3 from each skein. You can experiment with different numbers of cast-on stitches for a shorter or longer necklace. What a fast and fun summertime project!
T-Shirt Yarn Necklace Pattern
20 yards Be Sweet T-shirt yarn
24" size 13 needles
Cast on 60 stitches and join in the round.
Knit 20 stitches. Knit the next 4 stitches wrapping twice for each stitch. Knit the next 3 stitches wrapping 3 times each stitch. Knit the next 6 stitches wrapping 4 times each stitch. Knit the next 3 stitches wrapping 3 times each stitch. Knit the next 4 stitches wrapping twice for each stitch. Knit the last 20 stitches normal, bringing you to the end of round 1.
Next round, cast off! Cast off normal and just let the extra wraps fall off the needle as you go. When you get to the middle 12 stitches that have 3 or 4 wraps, you will want to knit 2 together for each cast off stitch, still letting the extra wraps fall off the needle. Continue casting off the rest of the stitches normal. Done!
