Tshirt Yarn Knotted Necklace Tutorial

I guess today’s necklace tutorial day – I’ve got another one for ya….

Here’s to actually doing things I’ve pinned – wahoo!

I first saw this tshirt scarf at Shwin &Shwin:

But I ended up making mine a little different, more of a necklace – I still love theirs and want to do their version in gray, but for a colored tshirt I thought less was more.  Here we go on the Tshirt Yarn Knotted Necklace Tutorial…
First, grab an old tshirt.  Then cut strips – mine are less than an inch, maybe 3/4 inch?? you don’t have to be precise.
Then to make the strips into “tshirt yarn”, just put your hands inside the big loop and pull.  It should turn out like this:
See how it got long and skinny?  That’s what you want.
Now, per the tutorial, I wrapped it around my hand a few times.  I show 3 times in the picture, but in the end I changed my mind and made it with 4 wraps around.  
Set your wrapped loops aside into little piles:
Then this is where I differ from the tutorial – they tie the loops together with extra string.  I tied the loops inside themselves – - think of how you take 2 hairties and loop them into each other to make a figure 8.  I took step-by-step pictures for you (ignore the obscene-looking picture #3…..)
So you’re going to use that knot-tieing method to connect all your piles.  Then you’ll end up with this:

To connect the beginning and end, just take a strip of tshirt, put it through both loops, and tie a knot.  It’ll end up like this:

Then wear it with pride!
