Hi, my name is Sara and I am obsessed with yarn.
So much so, that I make my own occasionally.
Before I forget, here are all the technical details for my yarn.
– 2 inch wide pieces
– Strips pressed in half
– 2.5 yards of fabric ripped into strips
– approx 45 strips
– Q sized hook
Step 1: Rip fabric into 2″ wide strips and then see each strip end to end. Then press strips in half, creating your fabric yarn.
*If you have a serger, I’d recommend serging the ends together for a tighter seam. If not, then a simple straight seam with some back stitching will be fine.
Step 2: Make your bowl! The FREE pattern is below!
Treat the fabric yarn like a really thick, chunky yarn and grab a Q sized hook!
Round 1: Chain 4. Slip stitch beginning and end chains together to form a loop.
Round 2: Chain 2. Crochet into the loop, 11 double crochets. Slip stitch round closed.
R3: Chain 2. In each following stitch, increase by adding 2 single crochets in every stitch. Slip stitch round closed.
R4: Chain 2. Working in the back loop only, Add one double crochet in each stitch. Slip stitch round closed.
R5 – R6: Chain 2. Add one double crochet in each stitch in the round. Slip stitch round closed.
R7 – R8: Chain 1. Add one single crochet into each stitch in the round. Slip stitch round closed.
To finished off the bowl weave in the remaining ends.
I made the bowl twice. Once to make the yarn more malleable and then again because, ya know, I undid the first bowl 😜.
I really love making yarn like this because of the incredible variation you get. Each piece you make will truly be one of a kind. Just like your beautiful self!
If you make your own fabric yarn and bowl, share with me and tag me on instagram @thewhistlingbluebird. I’d love to connect with you there!
