Besides rugs..? A coworker of mine gave me several bags of rug yarn (never can turn down free yarn). However- I haven't got a clue what I can make with it!
I've been googling but not coming up with much yet. Does anyone have any links to free patterns or suggestions of what to make?

Thanks

I was given a bunch of rug yarn too. I was thinking of making a knitting bag or something of that sort with it. I tend to take my knitting with me where ever we go and thought it would be something to use it on. I don't think I need another rug.

Since it's a tough yarn maybe something like a market bag would be good.

I totally love making slippers out of rug yarn. Lasts much longer!

You could also use a sock pattern that is designed for fairly large needles.

But slippers-slippers-slippers! Hands down.
