Description

Pattern Description:

We all have them, t-shirts that have served us well and we hate to see them go. Give them a new life by making them into tarn, yarn made from t-shirts. This pattern shows you how to use recycled tees two ways using a log cabin threading. Make a small table runner that an infinite number of uses or sew the fabric into cover for a tablet or add a strap of your choice for a crossbody bag.

Included in the pattern is step-by-step instructions with color photos to make tarn—yarn made from t-shirts.

This pattern is a free bonus patterns for Patrons of the Yarnworker School, gifted after the Summer 2018 rag rug weave-along. By popular demand, I’ve added it to the Yarnworker pattern collection.
