Rita's Crochet T-Shirt Rug
Crochet Q Hook
4 yards of 60" width t-shirt fabric, cut into 1" strips
** I don't sew my ends together with the fabric but you can if you wish...
***In this pattern you are going to continuously crochet in the round, there won't be any rows. Mark the beginning and move the marker up each time you go around.
Slip stitch into the top of the beginning chain.
Single Crochet in the top of the next chain. Do 2 sc in the next sc. Repeat 5 times.
Single Crochet in the top of the next 2 chains. Then sc in the next sc 2 times. Repeat around 2 times.
Single Crochet in the top of the next chain. Then sc in the next 5 sc. In the next sc, do 2 sc in the same stitch. Do this for the remainder of the project until you reach the desired size you want.
If the rug doesn't lay flat. You can increase the sc in any stitch by doing 2 sc in one stitch.
I enjoy recycling t-shirts, jeans, fabric and other items, even towels, into these projects. They are functional and great to use anywhere in the house. The nursing homes love them as well. So think about your gift giving this year and what you can make for those you plan to gift...
