If you are a true yarn lover like me, you understand the thrill of free yarn. :) This is a ball of yarn made from scraps that would otherwise be tossed. It's a great way to use up all those extra tid-bits of yarn that would otherwise be useless to create another project. All those teeny tiny little bundles, not to mention your trimmed ends after weaving in your tails.
I will be posting a couple of fun and easy projects that you can create with your new yarn.
Total Time: Hour or less
Yield: as much as you want :)
- scraps of cotton yarn
- 1 scissors
- 2 hands:)
- Start with 2 lengths of yarn, anywhere from 2 inches to 2 feet. Tie together with a basic knot. Repeat with a second knot over the first. This serves to strengthen your ball of yarn and makes it more durable.
- Continue to add on and double knot your lengths of scrap yarn until you are happy.
- When you are finished, you should end up with something like this. Now you are ready to create a truly unique project.
