How to Join Fabric Strips Together


Ever wanted to join fabric strips together for knitting or crochet or anything else without having big knots that are difficult to hide in your work or that can come undone. Here’s an easy method of joining those strips that won’t undo or make big bumps.

 

Join the strips of fabric together as follows: fold each short side of each strip over about 1.5cm and cut a slit about 1cm long from the fold into the fabric, being careful not to cut through the fabric edge. Slip the end of one piece of fabric (call it the top end) through the slit of another piece of fabric and then take the opposite end of the first piece of fabric and slip it through the slit in the top end of the same piece, pull tight to knot them together. For wider strips of fabric, just make the folded section longer and cut the strips longer to accommodate the width of your fabric. Keep joining new strips to your “rope” until it is as long as you want it to be.
