Remember my T-Shirt ball of yarn I made here: https://thethriftyneedle.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/t-shirt-rug/
I found a few more T-Shirts to cut into yarn and I made this round rug with a crochet hook. I am NOT a crochet-er. I Knit and have never really got the hang of crocheting, but… this is so simple and all in the round and SOOOO forgiving that if I can do it… anyone can!
This rug measures about 5 feet across the middle, it looks small in this shot as there isn’t anything to compare it too. I had to stand and make this because it was the easiest way for me… I started with about 6 -8 slip knots and then I joined into a circle. I (think it’s called) single crocheted the entire rug in a circle by laying it on a table top and turning. Super fast as these are HUGE stitches.I used the largest crochet hook I could find in my stuff… which technically wasn’t really large enough for the ‘yarn’ so I sort of used my fingers more to hold down the stitches.
I’m finished for now, but I didn’t totally close off the last live stitch. When I finish painting at the riverhouse… see the optimistic outlook I have, we have about a half dozen paint shirts that will finish off the outer edge…. so until then…
