Rag Rug?

Hi every one, it's nice to be back again making things, but my other crafts suffer when I am on the stitching bug. lol hey ho. Well I found some Yarn at Hobby Craft. I loved it, it's like T-Shirt material on a roll very easy to use I used a 10mm hook for this rug.

I Didn't have a pattern so I made it as I went along all in the round and although it's not perfect I really like it and I love the texture under my feet (as it's in the bed room) I would like to make one for the bathroom But I would prefer to have a pattern next time I can follow.

I used a treble stitch, here's a close up of how it looks. It grows very quickly obviously, if I had one complaint about the yarn is that it's not always the same thickness throughout and so your project can look different in places ( it did on my rug) it was very thick on the dusty pink nearly all the way through on one ball, but the bright pink was thick and thin in parts on different rolls.

It took just three rolls for this rug £12 as they are 3 for 2 at the moment. Overall I really liked the yarn and I may make another rug & some matching baskets in the bathroom. I hope you can leave a msg so I can also visit you and see what you have been making. There are also lots of stitching blog in my side bar I think are of interest be it sewing, knitting, or crochet have a look around Dxx

Hello Dawn! Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to comment while you were there! I made a rag rug a while back out of thrift store sheets that I tore and ripped into strips myself. It took forever, but I liked the results! I'm going to have a look around here and add you to my sidebar too. Happy Crocheting!
