Here's a fun little crocheted rag rug bathmat, the perfect project to introduce you to crocheting with rags! Of course, once you get started it's quite likely you wont want to stop, so start hoarding sheets, pillowcases and comforter covers, you're gonna need a ton of them!
With this little bathmat, I used a much larger hook than usual, 15mm, which produces a nice cushy rug perfect for a bathmat, but in my opinion a bit too thick for a rug in a room as it's a tripping hazzard. Of course this would be a perfect thickness for a stool cover (wish I had a stool to cover!) or a chair pad, so get creative!
- sheets, pillowcases, etc. For this little rug I used two pillowcases and about 2 1/2 small crib sheets
- a tutorial for cutting or tearing flat/fitted sheets to make yarn, info here, and for comforter covers and pillowcases, follow the tutorial for making yarn from t-shirts, here.
- a size 15mm crochet hook
- star fish washcloth pattern, here, follow pattern for first 5 rows, and then do last row as a single crochet row instead of a double crochet row.....depending on the size of rug that works for you, add more rows!
That's it, once you get the hang of it there's no stopping you, so let me know how it goes!
