Here is my first finished object in crochet.
These pre-knitted hand-dyed blanks will soon be available in our shop.
You simply unravel the end and knit directly from the piece of fabric.
Surprisingly, linen does not crinkle as much as wool when it it's knit up and subsequently unravelled. It does crinkle a bit but if you run the yarn through the end of your finger and thumb it smooths out quite easily. Fortunately, you don't have to do this as you knit/crochet with it. The crinkle naturally disappears as you knit/crochet your new project.

If you are interested in obtaining the pattern, please contact me. If I receive enough requests I'll see what I can do about writing it up.
