Crocheted Bathroom Rug
I purchased some black and white and red fabric. I loved how the stripes were perfect for cutting and ripping for crafts. This one was for a bathroom rug I have been wanting to make.
Total Time: 4-6 hours
- 45 yd of fabric strips per square times 9 squares of your choice of fabric to rip ($2.99)
- 45 yd per square times 9 squares rug or double strand yarn ($1.25)
- 1 inch Stitch Witchery for every join. ($.25)
- iron and board ($0.00)
- size N hook (the new 10.5 mm ones)
- To start each 1/2" strip, cut down from the edge about 2" and rip all the way. I used fabric that was 24' long so the longer your fabric strips the less you have to join them. I use Stitch Witchery and an iron so it's tedious and you want the strips to be longer rather than shorter.
- With your size N hook and your fabric and yarn together, chain 18. Make a single crochet in the first chain, then skip one and chain one, and make a single in the next one. This is known at the linen stitch.
Make 14 rows for a square and leave a 3" tail.
- Sew them together as you would any granny. Work in the tails and you are ready to lay it down.
- NOTE: If you are wondering why I didn't just do one long piece, it was because I was not sure if I had enough fabric to make it the size I wanted. By doing the squares, you can change to another fabric if you need to and do five of one and four of the other. As it turns out, I had enough and more but I would not have wanted to start over should it had not been enough. N-JOY!!
