Slouch beanie hat made from recycled T-Shirts

Can't knit? Can't crochet? Not a problem.
If I can do this, you can do this.

As someone who owns a small library of everything one might need to learn how to crochet, I have to admit, I simply can't get it through my head, or I'm not willing to invest in a learning period. Even "How to Crochet for Dummies" gathers dust in my house.

Along came the circle loom. 

The day this loom arrived in our mail, I made a hat. It is THAT easy. Opened the package, read the very brief instructions, and made a hat without a hitch in just a few hours. No, I don't work for any of the companies that produce these products, I'm just that hooked on them, and can't help but to emphasize, this is an easy project for the young, not so young, male or female. If you already know how to use a circle loom, perfect! Simply replace the yarn with T-SHIRT YARN, and you are well on your way!

Recycle T-Shirts into Seamless Yarn

Just about anyone you know likely owns at least one T-shirt, if not dozens or hundreds of them. As a result, they seem to be one of the most ‘disposable’ articles of clothing in today’s world.

Walk into any second-hand store, and you’ll probably find several racks full of them. This provides the perfect opportunity for re-purposing them, for mere pennies if you find the right sale.

Now begins the curiously addicting chore. You may find this to be a very relaxing process, like me.
I have made and rolled up umpteen T-shirt balls.

And now, the most important question. What to do with this newfound material?
