21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / keep an eye on the floor - my huge eyeball rug on: January 22, 2009 04:34:24 AM
Hello everyone.
This is the first time I start a topic, so I am very excited. I am going to tell you about my huge eyeball rug. I was really inspired by some pictures of rugs made of old t-shirts I saw here, so I decided to make one. All I used for it were my hands (because I coudnt get a crochet hook big enough) old t-shirts, sweatshirts, scraps of elastic fabric und an ugly fleece blanket. I used this tutorial to make the t-shirt yarn: http://eloomanator.eloomanation.com/?p=46
And now on to the pictures. (I hope I can figure out what you have to do to upload them)

The ruler on this picture ist 50 cm long, so you can imagine how big the rug is.

Thank you for your attention. And write some comments, please. Wink

I got the question how I crocheted without a crocheting hook. So I will try to explain:
I just pretended that the forefinger of my right hand was a crocheting hook. Then I crocheted the rug as a normal circle, making all the movements the hook does using my finger, while holding the rug whith the other hand. This "no hook" technique was quite tricky at the biginning but then I got used to it. Sorry, if I could not explain this technique very well, but my English is not good at all, when it comes to technical terms of crocheting.

Hey, a fellow german. It was like meeting an old friend when I saw the "natronundsoda.net" on your pictures. I am really addicted to that site.
Alles Liebe  Grin
