Just note that the Martha Stewart one has changeable pieces that you can make a small square with and its not as bulky to hold. Would try to hit it on a day like today when JoAnns has a 60% off coupon!

I'm not sure this is helpful so much later after your initial question.... But if you're really trying to use that tee shirt yarn, and still not having much luck, you can try crocheting AROUND it, with another yarn.  (Just like crocheting around rope or wire.)  Like this rug I made for Abbeeroad.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435539.0

I found that the slight differences in the tee shirt yarn didn't matter as much, as I was simply going around them, and that the yarn I was actually crocheting with didn't change thickness or texture.

What perfect timing, I was just looking at something similar this morning (when I woke up at 4:20am & couldn't get back to sleep, of course I surfed pretty crafts Cheesy). I'd like to make a rectangle as it's meant to be a bathmat. I do like circular rugs a lot and your is just marvelous Jennie Smiley.

You can totally do a rectangle pattern with the same technique.  Smiley

Jennie--that is a great idea!  I am not wild about actually using t-shirt yarn for a lot of reasons...I did a small basket crocheting around clothesline and it was pretty simply to do...I am definitely going to have to try this since I have so many old t-shirts that are just not even fit to give to charity, but too good to throw out!
