DIY OlyFun Yarn

Category: Utility

OlyFun is great for fabric yarn, as it doesn’t fray and cuts like paper. I used it to crochet a rainbow crossbody bag. It can be used for crocheting, knitting, macrame, weaving, or any other project where you’d normally use yarn, string or twine. This is a great way to use up large OlyFun scraps!

Instructions

  • OLYFUN YARN 1

Step One

Cut a long rectangle of OlyFun. I found it’s easier to work with, if the width is no more than 6 inches. The longer the length, the longer the yarn strips will be before it hits the turn.

Step Two

Cut along the rectangle length, 1/4″ from the edge. Stop 1/4″ from the end. Cut back the opposite direction 1/4″ from the new edge. Stop 1/4″ from the end. Repeat, cutting back and forth in a zigzag pattern. Try to keep the strips an even width. I just eyeballed the width. Marking lines would be too tedious.

Step Three

You can wind the OlyFun yarn around an old paper towel tube, or your fingers, to create a ball. I used 6 colors of my crochet project, and had to make more yarn as I progressed. I found winding it around my hand or looping it loosely worked best. If you’re making a lot to use later, you can store it on a spool/tube or wound ball, in a plastic zipper bag.
