I’m looking for information about knitting with denim strips. Has anyone done this? Are there some articles or references in books about cutting up old jeans and knitting them up? I would love to hear from you!
Here’s a bag made with denim strips. The instructions it has might help.
[COLOR=black][COLOR=black]I been making this [COLOR=#800080]demin purse[/COLOR]… I love the look and the idea of knitting with denim… BUT knitting with denim is hard to work with. I can only work with it for a short time before my finger start hurting.[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]When I went to cut the jeans I used a roller scissor that quilter used. It make it so much easer. [/COLOR]
I have some Fabric that I bought as yarn. The way they cut that is neat. I took a picture so you can see… I hope it will make since to you.
That is FABBY! bookmarks
Thank you for your responses. In summary:
- cut strips 1/2 inch wide
- knot strips together or cut from a rectangle as shown in the photo so that a long strip unfolds (something like a zig-zag)
- use US size 11 needles
- be alert for "hurting hands"
What great help! Thank you both.
