In a Dutch magazine "Handwerken Zonder Grenzen" there is a contest to make a design for a yarn called Hoooked zpagetti http://www.hoooked.nl/
This yarn is a tube of jersey made of rest materials from the fabric and fashion industries.
Since I didn't have the yarn at hand I made my own version to get a material with similar properties. I cut up 2 t-shirts in two long bands of jersey yarn. With this I knitted my design in dropped stitches on needles sz 10.
And here's the result: a "Ztad-Kat" (="Zity-Kitty") It's a cozy for the small poles you find in a lot of Dutch towns. I did it in red and white because many cities, like my own, have those as their town-colours. And the candy stripe effect makes it an original decoration for the upcoming holidays!
