This is a repost of the tutorial that I did for Bugaboo, Mini, Mr. & Me for her Yarn it All Series.
When Kimberly asked me to be a part of her Yarn it All series, I immediately said yes. Then I started thinking… what in the world am I going to do with yarn?! I am a begining crochet-er at best and it takes me a REALLY long time to crochet anything. Usually my hats are too small and the shoes I crochet aren’t the same size. So my yarn skills may be a little rusty but my refashion skills are doing alright. I thought if I could combine yarn with a refashion, then I may just be able to pull off a cute DIY yarn project after all. And thus the Crochet Collar Shirt Refashion was initiated.
I started by taking in a men’s shirt. If you need help taking in a big shirt you can check out this post I did. After I took it in I cut off the collar. I followed the tutorial from New Stitch a Day on How to Crochet a Circle and Picot Edging. Using a G hook, I followed the instructions which called for me to start a chain in multiples of 5 plus 1. I crocheted until my chain went the length of my collar. It ended up being 56. If I were to do it again I think I would do 61 stitches. I followed the tutorial. It was not perfect but I tried my best. I pinned the yarn collar onto the shirt and sewed it on with my sewing machine. I didn’t sew every piece, just the outline of the crocheted part.
So far it has held up well! I have washed it multiple times and it still looks like new. I do hang dry it.
Thanks for stopping by!
