T-shirt scarf/necklace

I've been seeing t-shirt scarves and necklaces all over Pinterest. Although at first I didn't love them, I had a shirt that didn't really fit but was a pretty color so I decided to try it.

I cut out the back of this shirt and cut one inch strips horizontally. I ended up with 20 strips.

I then stretched the strips a few at a time until they became long and thin and the sides curled.

I divided my stack into two groups (ten each) and tied knots between pairs, one from each group.

I ended up with ten long strips which I made one big knot of in the center (both ends were loose).

I didn't like the look of the big knot, so I took a sleeve and wrapped it around the knot a few times until it completely hid the knot. Finally, I tied all of the pairs that were previously loose, completing the circle.

This is what I ended up with! I'm pretty pleased :)
