Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s some frequently asked questions and the Bloggers response:
“How many Tees did I use? “
I used mostly old kids clothes, and I’ve just counted about 44, but if you used adults tee’s I’d imagine 20 would be enough. It measures just over a metre in Diameter ( or about 40 inches)
“How was the edge finished?”
I turned under the tail end of the last coil and stitched it in place. Then I used a very long strip of yellow jersey, about 1″ wide, and a crochet hook, to do a border of single crochet stitch.” (via Cuada)
