I told you about my thrift store (it’s actually a Value Village) addiction. This time, I made a trip especially for yarn. I NEEDED a project, but we’re broke, so I told my boyfriend I’d make do with 4$. (Not that we only have 4$, but it was all I had in spare change)
I really wanted to try t-shirt yarn. I always crochet with very thin and very soft yarn and MAX 5.5mm hooks.
Anyways, I found a bag of t-shirt (it’s more of a swimsuit fabric) yarn for 2,99$. We went home, I made food for the week, did just enough stuff in the house to not feel guilty about sitting down and crochet and went on Pinterest.
I chained, and chained, made a row, and another, thought this would be soooo heavy as a scarf, and too stiff for a hat. Didn’t have enough for a rug, so I turned to a simple but very cute basket that doesn’t match any room in my house, but oh well.
Honestly, if you are an intermediate crocheter, you won’t need a pattern for this, but if you are a beginner, here’s how it’s done.
Extra chunky yarn. Or t-shirt yarn. Or swimsuit yarn (it’s a thing now)

Round 1: 2HDC in each stich (16)
Round 2: [2HDC in same stitch (inc), 1 HDC], repeat (24)

Whaaaaaaaaaaaa? It’s so unlike you, Alexe.
Yeah, well, Aaron Paul. (And I still can’t believe Will Arnett has such a deep voice!) Plus, both opening and credit themes are great.
No kidding, it’s very good, very well written, it’s a Netflix original, plus you can hear Lisa Kudrow in season 2! (Friends fanatic here! Look, I even have a mug. (two mugs))
Happy crochet (and TV) dear friends!
