So I found a great pile of jeans that are out of style. I thought of saving them because they actually are specimens of denim without elastic. (Still, I do believe that whomever made it possible for jeans to stretch should win a Nobel prize). I was curious about what to do with all of these old jeans. Even bringing them to Good Will seemed ridiculous. Could I somehow knit strips of the stuff into a rag rug? I did a search and actually found this neat pattern for a bag made of an old pair of jeans.
I wonder if you knit 1 inch strips with size 17+ circular needles to build the sides of a basket or bowl for storing things in.
Just a thought… but otherwise there’s a pretty neat pattern for a rag rug here. The pattern includes recommendations for cutting sizes for the strips of different types of fabric including denim, tee shirts, panty hose, and grocery bags.
