Warm feet once again.....

There have been two large cones of tshirt yarn sitting in my studio for months. I wanted to try using it but reading other bloggers talk about how difficult is can be to use, I kept putting it off. Recently, I found this pattern for a placemat and decided it was time to get that yarn out and give it a try...


I simply grabbed a 15mm crochet hook and got started. I found it quite easy to use with this large hook and it lays really nicely on the ground. I kept going until the yarn ran out of the one color and then switched over to the next. In the end, my rug came out to be 80cm x 100cm (31-1/2 x 39-1/2 inches). It is now in our bedroom on Jos' side of the bed. He can wake up in the morning to nice warm feet. *grins*

  3. Oh, wat mooi! Ik ga, nu ik dit gezien heb, meteen mijn poging met haaknaald nr 10 uithalen. Dit is zo veel mooier. Wat een goed idee om een placemat-patroon te gebruiken. Groetjes Sonja
