Stitch demo with tshirt yarn and double ended crochet hook. Crochet project bag or basket.
Working with tshirt yarn today as I create the base for a project basket/bag. Still need to figure out how much I need for various projects. I have coffee (shown) and espresso brown. I think this will evolve into a two-toned bucket bag, but I’m just working on shaping the base right now. I’m using a double-ended crochet hook to make a two-way crocheted stitch. Working in two directions provides a little sturdier stitch for this project. I actually needed a larger hook, but I’m getting by. Let me know if you have used tshirt yarn before? And, if so, what did you make?
After working up the sides a few inches, I set the bag/basket aside momentarily. Next I knew, our fur friends had found it and what was going to be a project bag became a new cat bed!
