When I cut the strips from my dress, I messed up and ended up with lots of short pieces that had to be tied together. I knit a garter stitch base with two strands on size 17 needles. Then I knit around and around on the same needles but just one strand of fabric and using a 4 row YO pattern (YO, K2tog on first row. SSK, YO on the third. K the even rows.) When I was nearly out of fabric strips, I cut up a white t-shirt using these clever instructions. (T Shirt Yarn) I knit until I ran out of that, then put in a couple more rows of dress fabric, decreasing one in four stitches on the second to last row. Then I threaded a piece of hem from the dress through the loops. That's it.
