I just remembered that one of my old knitting magazines had a pattern for a rug that used really big needles like 15mm or 20mm and then cast on as many stitches as you want your blanket to be using 10 or more strands of yarn. so sort out all your yarn in colours or mixes of colours and start knitting when one or more ball of yarn finishes just add another ball of yarn in what ever colour your fancy and knit away knit in the end as your go. came out really good in the magazine

I have felted all 8 of the rug I have made.

One of my next projects is to make a piece of yardage (60" wide after felting) to upholster a club chair an ottoman.
Great Looking Rugs, Kurango!!!

Yeah, when I put down my first rug, I told my husband that no one was allowed to walk on it.

Kurango, those rugs are so pretty,they should be wall hangings. I couldn't bear to walk on them.

I've made braided rugs out of old clothing, love the process and the finished product.

Those are beautiful rugs. I am looking for a pattern for a toilet mat with rounded edges. I haven't had any luck yet.

Plus, I have a huge stash of 100% Acrylic yarn and I thought may I could double the strands and use that to make a toilet and bath mat. Any ideas?

I understand that consignment shops can be picky about what they will take, but do you not have Goodwill, Salvation Army, and some of the other charity thrift stores? I have never known them to turn down usable clothes
