Knit a Sweater Out of T-Shirt Yarn

Knit a sweater out of tshirt yarn!I love making and using T-shirt yarn, but sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do with it. The always fabulous Donatella from Inspiration and Realisation was inspired by a chunky elongated stitch top from the Richard Nicoll Resort 2015 collection to make her own long-sleeved tunic out of old T-shirts.

It’s a really great project and perfect for this time of year when it’s still a little warm for a sweater but you might need a little extra something to keep you a bit warmer.

She worked her version from the bottom up on the body and the top down on the sleeves, and though the project is only shown in one size it would be pretty easy to alter if you wanted to.

What a great idea. I may just have to make a sweater out of shirts sometime.
