Knitting with Twizzlers

That's right!  I spent a day playing with Twizzlers Pull 'n' Peel Candy, knitting with Twizzlers to be more exact.



Knitting with twizzlers is a little tricky because the candy has no give.  In the video, you will see me break a stitch, and try to repair it.  Sometimes you can squish the candy back together, but in that stitch the candy had been pulled too much for me to make a whole stitch again.  


I hope you enjoyed this silly little knitting project of mine.  What is the silliest thing you've ever used for knitting?

  1. Haha! I'm so please that somebody's done this - I can't remember a single time which I've eaten these without tying knots in them/plaiting them toegther!

    1. I LOVE this idea! It just so happens I have a great list of free tie knitting patterns.

  3. That is really rather cool. I tried knitting with hair once...exactly the same issue with the stretchiness, + you can't really see the stitches! Was fun to try though

  5. I saw a crochet site that used cut up plastic bags, to make a lovely reusable bag. I keep meaning to have my own go at knitting. Actually maybe that isn't silly at all. Did you see my message on your last post?

    1. I tried knitting with plastic bags once and I ended up breaking my knitting needles :(. I think that you want to make sure you keep the tension really loose because the plastic has no give to it at all.

      I did see your previous comment. Thank you so much for the nomination!
