Tshirt Yarn Lace Wrap
© Stefanie Japel 2009
Created for Upcycled Tshirt Yarn Class http://stefaniejapel.ning.com
Yarn: Use any of your Upcycled Tshirt yarns…any diameter, any color. This wrap looks best if you use similar colors of yarn, or if you can, all one color.
Needle: I used a set of 14” US 19 straight needles for my project.
Needle size will be determined by your yarn and by your swatches. I recommend that you swatch on several needle sizes and compare the swatches to see which produces the fabric that you like best.
This is a gaugeless project. No matter what size of yarn you have made, this project will look great. The yardage that you’ll need will vary greatly depending on the size of the finished project, the size of needles that you choose, and the diameter of your yarn.
Create the size that suits you! This pattern is written using a simple multiple-of-six-plus-one stitch pattern repeat. You can make your wrap with as many or as few repeats of the stitch pattern as you like, and make it as long (or short) as you like! You will keep 3 stitches at each edge in garter stitch to prevent the edge from rolling, and just knit until you either run out of yarn or are happy with the length.
