  1. Hi there. Are there any videos or patterns that show actually working with the denim yarn? I interested in knitting (not crocheting) a scarf with the denim yarn. Thanks

    • Hi Susan!
      I haven’t found any patterns specifically for yarn made from jeans but any pattern using t-shirt yarn should work well, especially for rugs and purses, etc. Thanks for popping by!
