I have been teaching Live at 11 am EST each weekday morning in my Facebook page. A few days back I taught how to make your old t-shirt into yarn. Here is the dishcloth I made using that type of yarn - I use it under hot pans to protect my table and with hot water and soap to wipe down the counters. Here is my pattern that came to me from my dear friend Barbara.

Dishcloth Knitting Pattern UsingYarn Cut from a T-Shirt

Use a Size 15 Needle

1.     Cast on 4 stitches

2.     Row1: Increase in the first stitch by knitting through the front and back, thenknit across.  You now have 5 stitches.

3.     Row2: Increase in the first stitch, then knit across (You now have 6 stitches)

4.     Row3: Increase in the first stitch, then knit across (You now have 7 stitches)

5.     Row4: Increase in the third stitch, (for a total of 4 stitches on the right needle), yarn over, and then knit to the end then knit across (You now have 9stitches)

6.     Row5: Knit three stitches, yarn over, and knit to the end

7.     Repeat step 6 until you have 50 stitches on your needle

8.     You will now begin to decrease.  Knit 2, knit2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together and then knit to the end.  Repeat this pattern until you have 8 stitchesleft on your needle.

9.     Decrease to 4 stitches by knitting 2 stitches together across the entire row.

10.  Bind off. Cut the yarn and use a yarn needle to weave in the loose ends
