I really wasn’t sure how many dish towels I needed, so I piled up the ones that looked the saddest. Then I started to cut and rip them into strips (ps this towel was not bad I just needed a fifth towel – I found out – and I had not more sad ones 😉)

After cutting 4 I started to attach the strips to make my “yarn”

I folded over one end (do this with every strip) and cut a slit. Do this on the two pieces you plan to connect. Then feed one end into one hole. Pull the strip through and feed it into that strips hole. Pull. Ta da connected. This takes a bit of time, but its fun.
So there will be a slit on both ends of every strip except the first and last one. I did have one towel that was thin and on some of those I just tied.

Then you knit! I used a 17 straight for mine. It wasnt super tight, like the one in Natural Nursery Knits, so it turned out floppy. More like a bowl.
