Spread your t-shirt out on your cutting surface - a table or even the floor - and smooth it out so there are as few wrinkles or parts of the fabric bunching up as possible.
Cut the hem off
Cut across the body of the shirt as close as possible to the sleeves
Now grab one edge and fold it over to the other, leaving about one inch of space between them, like so. In the photo above I folded the edge closest to us in the photo over to the furthest edge.
Get your scissors and starting at the fold closest to us in the photo, cut strips at least one inch apart. Stop cutting just as you cut through the edge at the top, leaving that inch border uncut.
Now unfold and loosen up the strips
Time to make it into one looooong strip! Cut as shown along the uncut portion in the middle
Start at the edge and cut diagonally from the outside at the right (next to my thumb), to the first split at the left. Then from the next split on the right, to the second split on the left all the way through to the end.
To make it into yarn, all you have to do is pull that strip, and the knit fabric will just curl itself up!
Pull along the entire length, then roll into a ball.
