Jersey Yarn Creations

by Alexandre Callier-Taylor

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.
Expert textile designer Alexandre Callier-Taylor has created 20 modern and stylish designs that make use of the slightly elastic but robust quality of jersey yarn, including pots, rugs, pillows, bags and mats. With clear step-by-step knitting and crochet instructions, this book is ideal for crafters of all abilities looking for new ideas and inspiration.
