Here, Nicole, owner of Darn Good Yarn and your guide to all cool things with all cool yarns shows you how to easily take that sometimes pesky twist out of recycled sari yarn! There is a second video below that shows you how to make a surgeon’s knot like what I describe in the video… this guy did a much better job than me though:)
Check out the one skein scarf that’s super easy and takes no time at all to make. Best of all it’s made from recycled silk sari remnants and is created by women. No sweatshops, no child labor and only at www.darngoodyarn.com
Get your size 19 knitting needles. Cast on 5 and work the whole skein up in garter stitch. Yea it’s simple. but like what I always say, you don’t need to over-complicate a complex yarn with a crazy pattern. Let the yarn speak for itself!
So, the easiest thing is to of course watch the video (at the bottom..give it a second or two to load)… I think I’m addicted to my webcam.
But, I need to share this awesome new website with all of you Darn Good Yarn-ers! My dad’s cousin Lori just launched this site Groovy Green Livin
