a recent finished project. I'd love to know what you think of my new rug  Smiley


The rug measures about 33" across.  I did not really follow a pattern at all.  I just single crocheted in the round.  I think I started by chaining 6 & then I joined with a slip stitch to form a ring.  From there I just single crocheted like you would if you were making a hat or amigurumi and increased my stitches here & there ( I didn't even keep track of rows ) I just eyeballed it and made sure it was laying flat every few rows.

To make the yarn I starting tearing about a 1 1/2" strip but stopped ripping about 1-2 inches from the end & then repeated this process again on the other side while keeping the first strip connected. I repeated this step until I had one long continuous strip. This elimated any sewing to join strips or countless knotting of each single strip. When I needed to join another color I just knotted the two strips together.  

ETA: there is a little more info about the rug on page 3 of this thread Wink & I added a few more ramblings above this picture

That's so neat!  Did you follow a pattern?  Would you share it if you did?  Great job!

Oh my gosh that rug is gorgeous. It reminds me of when I was a little kid. How did you do it - I would love, love, love to make something like that for my own home.
Simply gorgeous!

It's lovely!.  The colors you used are beautiful.  How did you do it?  How long did it take you to make it?  What material is made out of?  Sorry for all the questions, but I would love to make something like that.

Thanks for sharing!

That is very cool.  I think I just found a project for all of my fabric that I don't have a use for.  Grin
