yarn made from blankets
I have 3 balls of yarn made from recycling blankets. I hope to make some sort of basket, possibly for a pet or for storage.
Has anyone any patterns that they have used with this blanket yarn?
Any hook/needle that they recommend?
I'm thinking big like 25mms.
I will probably adapt a t shirt pattern and use one of my pet bed patterns.
Gorgeous yarn! I've made a few crochet pots, bowls and so on; I'd recommend heading over to ravelry and searching their patterns. Many of them are free and there's everything from simple to complex. Happy making!
It's so nice, how did you make it?
thank you Helen W. I am indeed a fan of Ravelry .
Emily I found the balls in a second hand shop , I have since cut the red tartan yarn down the middle and so have now double the quantity and a much more manageable yarn.
So cool, what are you going to knit with it?
Yes I would try the 25mm and see how you like the fabric it makes.
thanks for all the above replies I hope to make a cat basket
