A couple of people have requested a tutorial on how I made the rag rugs I've posted in the last couple of weeks. To be honest, I used tutorials I found on other blogs and a pattern I bought from CraftSanity magazine. So I would feel bad if I redid all their work and called it my own. Instead, what I'm going to do is provide all the links I used to get my info.
The T-Shirt Yarn tutorial I used came from Let Birds Fly. My strips are 2" wide for this project because it makes the rugs thicker.
I started off using an excellent tutorial on crocheting round rag rugs from The Sunroom. This pattern uses single crochets and I used it to make the rag rug no one has seen. You know, the starting rug that doesn't look that great and I have every intention of fixing, eventually.
Then I found this pattern using double crochets. It was published in issue 4 of CraftSanity magazine and you can get the entire magazine, as a PDF, for $5. It's definitely worth it because, turns out, there's lots of good stuff in there!! I really like the way this pattern works up. It's pretty and it's fast.
I think that's it! Oh, the hook I use is a size Q, 16mm. Hope that helps!!
