Step 1: Materials Required
Best part of making this project is that all the things you need you already own them.
-bunch of old t-shirts (I will be using two colour of t-shirts, peach and white for this project, you can play with as many colours as you wish)
-Crochet size 6
-Pencil and a scale.
Step 2: Making Yarn Out of Old T-shirts
First cut out the edge of the t-shirt.
Mark little slanting lines starting from mid of the Base of t-shirt and these line should continue from front to back, so we can have a continuous yarn out of it.
Now cut on the markings to get continues yarn.
Make your ball of t-shirt yarn.
Step 3: Crocheting....!!!
1. Make a loose knot at the starting of yarn.
Row1. Make 13 tr (trebles) in the ring.
-Join at the first tr with the sl (slip) st (stitch).
- Now pull the loose end of the ring and tighten the ring.
Row 2. Make 3 ch (chain), 1 tr in the same place of the first ch, V (2 tr in one stitch) in each st of first round, Join the last st at the 3rd ch.
Row 3. Make 3 ch, V in next st of the round and 1 tr in next st, repeat till the end of the round and join at the 3rd ch of the 1st tr.
Row 4. Make 3 ch, V in next st and 1 tr each in next 2 stitches, repeat V, 2 tr, V till the end of the row. sl st in 3rd ch.
These 4 rows make the base of the bowl.
Step 5: Sides
Row 5. 1 dc in the back of the ch all around the last row, join with the sl st.
Row 6. 3 ch, 1 tr in each dc of previous row.
Row 7.to 9. 3 ch, 1 tr in each tr of previous row.
