More UPcycling Rugs

UPcycling;,NOT REcycling sheets into gorgeous crocheted  rugs. Crocheting rag rugs is so much fun to do because it is fast and satisfying.

I crocheted each rag rug in  a few  hours, from one single sheet and half a queen sized duvet. No pattern needed;  just make a magic circle, squeeze in 8 to 11 half double crochets into the loop and start crocheting around. I varied the rows with  half double crochets and double crochet stitches using a size Q hook…fun, fast, frugal!

I ripped the sheets length wise  into strips about 1 1/2 ” , leaving an inch or so at the end, then snipping 1 1/2 inches over to start the next strip. No need to tie ends together; the strips were continuous.

I got my inspiration from http://www.kingsoleil.com/Upcycled_Crochet_Rug.html
