Using old tee shirt scraps I used to make a t-shirt quilt, I made a crocheted rag rug. My rug is 40 inches in diameter.

Approximate Time: 10 hours.

  • you need around 12 tee shirts

  2. Roll up the strips into balls.
  3. Chain 4. Join with a slip stitch.
  4. Chain one and single crochet 12 stitches in the chain 4 circle.
  5. When you get to the beginning of the first row, join with a slip stitch and chain one.

  8. Join with a slip stitch. Chain 2.
  9. Double crochet in first stitch and 2 DC in the next. Crochet in this pattern all around and join with a slip stitch as before.
  10. Continue increasing at regular intervals for each row. Continue around as big as you want until you are out of strips.
  11. Slip stitch into the first stitch of the last row you did. Cut the strip. Fold it back under a loop and hand sew so you cannot see it.

The using of tee shirts can also be a memory rug from a loved one that has passed. What a wonderful gift it would make for the family.
