i noticed that mine was getting kinda heavy (and slightly stiff, though i'm hoping a few washings will help that)....but that gave me an idea, i have a heap of old tee's that i'm planning to cut up (cut the pictures off of or whatever) for quilts, and then use the scraps from that to knit a tee-shirt scarf. that might be more light weight and more stretchy than stiff.

just an idea right now, though....

Great idea! I'm trying to learn more about tee shirt recons right now, and I think I saw that in Tease. Will have to try it Smiley

I realize this is a old thread but I found your scarf through a wist listing. It's absolutely breathtaking! I got out all my scraps and started hacking them into strips... I couldn't believe how much there was! I have nearly a grocery sack full! And I haven't even cut up all the fabric yet! I still have some metallics to cut and tons of cotton! I did decide that knots were probably too much for me as a newbie knitter. So I got out my portable sewing machine and zig-zagged stitched the pieces together. So far this is my "ball" or "yarn":

With my fist for reference:

And in my hand for size:

I'm not even halfway done yet! This is going to rock so much! Thanks for inspireing me!

And I bought my size 15 knitting needled yesterday.  Cheesy I have 10's but  I figured I'll have enough fabric yarn that I can do the 15's first. Yes I read all the pages of pages of posts to read So_German's replies to every question.  Cheesy I'm a bit of a nut that way. Wink

I'm new to craftster, but I just had to respond to this thread.  The fabric scarf is so inspirational! 

What sorts of fabrics did you use?  I have a TON of polyester that I have no use for, and was wondering if it would work, maybe not for a scarf (it would be too itchy!), but for a rug?  Thoughts?  I would really like to find a use for this polyester!

Most of the fabrics I used in my scarf were 100% cotton (or a cotton blend).  I'm sure that polyester would be suited for a nice rug (but then again, what fabric wouldn't be?)

I say go for it, and definitely post your results!
