Crochet Rag Rug

October 11, 2010

Hey Friends!!

I know, I know it has been FOREVER and a day since a posted a project.

To be honest I was in a serious funk I didn't know what to do with my life/having a quarter life crisis!

But no worries I think that I have figured it out for now!

So today I am showing you how to make a

Crocheted Fabric Scrap Rag Rug

{Super fun huh! I made mine for in front of my kitchen sink.}

Want to make one of your own???

Here is what you need:

~Scraps of Fabric: The yardage depends on how large you want to make yours.
~A "Q" Crochet Hook
~Scissors

How it's done:

1. Cut and rip your fabric scraps into 1 inch strips, and roll into a ball.

2. Continue on with the Pattern:

{To join strips together was too hard to describe, so watch this video HERE to see how.}

1.Cast on to your crochet hook by making a slip knot.
2.Chain 3.
3.Join the chain 3 by making a slip stitch in the first chain 1.
4.Chain 1.
5.Make 9 single crochets through the center of the circle.
6.Join through the previously made chain 1 on this round by creating a slip stitch.
7.Chain 2.
8.Crochet 2 single crochets in each single crochet around. {Increase}
9.Join through previously made chain 2 on this round by crocheting a slip stitch.
10.Chain 1.
11.Continue around making single crochets in every single crochet slip stitch in the chain 1,
then chain one and continue around repeating yourself.
12.Continue previous step until rug starts to curl up like a bowl.
13.When the edges curl up, chain 2 and repeat step 8 making an increase.
14.Continue on with steps 10 and 11 until the rug begins to up again and repeat step 12.
15.Repeat step 14 until you have reached your desired size.
