Once frogged, the yarn has been washed and dried and ready for reuse. So exciting. They can be overdyed and make something new again.
I have a lot of left over yarn from projects made and I became interested in rag rugs but didn't want an arsenal of fabric. I decided tying the left over yarns and crochet with 3 strands and a P hook, I am almost finished with this warm circular rug,or blanket-don't have a title, yet.
|It's WAY bigger now!|
- Chain 6 and slipped stitch in the 1st ch. (circle made)
- Chain 1 and make 11 single crochet in the circle.
- Place marker for the first stitch and chain 1 and crochet around and slip stitch into the 1st ch 1 st.
- *Ch 1 and and 2 sc in the next st* Repeat * until you sl st into the 1st ch1,.
- The next round, ch 1 and sc all around and sl st in the 1st ch1.
- *Ch 1 and sc in the next st, 2 sc in the next sc.*Repeat * until you sl st into the 1st ch 1.
- The next round, ch1 and sc all around and sl st in the 1st ch1.
- Soooooo... Keep repeating the increase such as ch1 and sc in the next___sc(3,4,5,6,7,8,..as big as you want this to be) and 2 sc in the next sc. Repeat until you sl st in the next 1st ch 1. Remember, this may not end evenly as you increase every other row. Just go ahead and sc until you come to the 1st ch 1 and watch this grow. Keep the tied strings in the back and you can either weave as you go or cover the back with fabric such as flannel and use as a blanket. You decide. Enjoy!
