Here's a rug made of recycled T-shirt yarn.  All the rows are worked from right to left, no turning at the end of the row. The long tails are tied to form the fringe.

Thank you Thank you.
I had cut out a bunch of 12x12's for a t shirt quilt....and
couldn't bear to throw out the bottom parts hoping I
would be able to find something to do with them.
Thanks to you I have finally put it together.
Awesome job!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.  This is a fast project once you get all the yarn cut and rolled in a ball.  A Sunday afternoon will do it.  Ripple patterns work up nicely and the Star Baby Blanket make a cute rug too.

I think what she did was chain a length, how wide she wanted the rug, then cut the yarn, leaving a length for fringe. Starting from the same edge, the right-hand side, attach new yarn, leaving a length for fringe, then crochet across/ Cut the yarn, leaving a length for fringe. Repeat.

I have a tutorial on how to cut t-shirt yarn here:
