Recycled Knitting Pics

2 pairs of kids jeans cut into strips and knit into a scarf and then ends weaved together; worn by an adult above; worn by a girl below

Recycled pjs, knit into a light scarf, above
This is as far as several hours painstakingly unraveling a sweater has gotten me!

jeans scarf is just adorable - what a great idea and it looks so fashionable - love the big chuncky stitch - I'm off to make one as I've been saving jeans for a while with no real idea for what to do with them - thanks for sharing!

That is really cool! Very different. Unique is good. =)

As for the unraveling - have fun! I did most of one sweater before giving up. BTW, it's much, much easier with a ball winder. I got mine from JoAnn's with a coupon.

I haven't done any more unraveling since that pic... that's how much fun it is!!!
