Book Description

Jersey yarn, also known as T-shirt, fabric and textile yarn, is a chunky, stretchy yarn made from strips of jersey fabric. This exciting new product is made from off-cuts from the textile industry and is available in a wide range of colours, or alternatively you can make it yourself by cutting up old T-shirts into narrow strips. This versatile, over-sized yarn knits up quickly into eye-catching projects that will add instant impact to you and your home.

I must confess to never being a competent knitter, but the projects in this book appeal as they are fast, fun and look gorgeous. Jersey yarn, also known as T-shirt yarn can be used to knit or crochet or just about anything and the results are sturdy and stylish. So if you're looking for more fresh ideas then this is the book for you! From baskets that hold everything (from laundry to small knick knacks) stylish tablemats, a beautiful rugs, and even a pet house for your four-legged furry-friend- there's something for everyone.

I have to admit I've never worked with jersey yarn. I don't know why. This book will certainly change your mind. It shows just how this yarn can be so versatile for both knitters and crocheters. Jersey Yarn is also called t-shirt and fabric yarn. It's an amazing yarn to work with as it works up so fast. In no time you can have your project finished and brightening up your home. If you like a quick fix project then you'll love the patterns in this book. In no time you can have a fantastic project.
