Whole Living, but they didn't show how to get the "twist" look so I figured it out and want to show you a quick how-to...
Here I am, trying to replicate their picture, which never really works:
First up make your tshirt yarn. Basically, you cut a tshirt into a bunch of strips - mine were about 1 inch wide. Their tutorial tells you that part. Then you take that strip that you cut, which is actually a loop, and stretch it out. It will curl in on itself, and voila, it's tshirt yarn.
So lay all your loops out like this:
Then, with the twists in place, make a figure 8:
It's a little snugger on my neck than I had planned - I think the main reason is because the shirt I used was an XS, so the loops just weren't that big. But that's okay - it's not tight or anything.
I love simple, quick, easy projects - you can do this - really!! Go make one right now!
