Looks like a snap purse closure.  Wink

That belt totally reminds me of the "Captain N" cartoon!

Very nice! Was it woven cotton or knit fabric?

How would you wash it though? I made a knitted circle rug awhile ago and, when my husband (trying to be nice) put it in the washing machine, it became a wavy, lumpy mess.

And here it is!! (Sorry, I took so long. Been busy. As you can tell, it'd been a long day.)

The scarf was done in single crochet and took an entire skein. I still have two skeins left though.  Roll Eyes

Well, finally did up some swatches.

Here's one knit on 6mm needles.


The back view with all my knots.  Roll Eyes


And then, just to try, a crocheted version.


Now....to decide what to make/do with them, that's the question. I have three large skeins.  I'm thinking a long skinny crocheted scarf & hat set.  Cheesy

I use freezer paper for my patterns. Anywho....sheets are fantastic! Don't feel bad. Heck, if you feel brave, ask a local hotel for discarded bed sheets. The pricier hotels have really good quality sheets which get tossed if they have a rip, etc.  My church once got two huge boxes for dropsheets. It was crazy.

You could bury it door side-up and use it as an outside freezer locker.

Nah,  Wink ask all the newbie questions you want. I don't care.

As for the tutorial, well...I didn't use one.  Embarrassed And since I had no patience, really, I just snipped the sides and didn't mind the short pieces.

Yah, see, originally, I wanted to make a multi-striped sweater, so I used old sweaters plus short pieces I'd found in my stash. (Barely made a dent)  Well, the sweater ended up very, very multi-striped and looked nice until I made the mistake of putting in a hot wash load. It shrunk! So...not wanting to waste all that yarn, I upcycled yet again this time plying the yarn back onto itself.

Definately, have to stitch a swatch. I'll start tomorrow. Shouldn't take long.  Smiley Then you can tell me if you want a skein.

 Cheesy Thanks!  I think it's cute too! Though I should mention, 'cause I was so lazy, I merely tied any broken pieces together.  I ended up with large skeins. I should probably knit a sample up. Maybe that'll help my muse.

Oh and here's a tutorial  http://neauveau.com/recycledyarn.html
