T-Shirt Yarn Baby Bib

Posted on May 21, 2023

T-shirt yarn or tarn as some call it, is created by cutting a t-shirt into narrow strands. The ideal method is to find a t-shirt without side seams and cut it into one continuous strand. Then you stretch it to make what I call curled t-shirt yarn. Here is a tutorial on how to make curled t-shirt yarn.

That is the process that I used to crochet this baby bib.

I used the bottom hem from the t-shirt for the ties on the bib. The free crochet pattern with all the details can be found here. I did do a few modifications to original pattern which are as follows:

I crocheted 13 rows before doing just one round for the trim. I singled crocheted (SC) around the entire bib, matching BLO on diagonal edges and through both loops on the other edges with 3 SC’s on the corners and center bottom space. Finished size of this bib is 7.5″ wide by 7″ long.

Here is one more photo of the diagonal baby bib I crocheted from a recycled t-shirt.
