My Crochted Rug is Finished

Crochted Rug Finished rug edge

Crocheting a rug with torn fabric stripes is the perfect summer project. A bit dusty, somewhat big but a great leisure pursuit on the balcony when the sun is out. I started this project in in place on the backside. I crocheted this with a big sized hook and lots of great colours.

Finished rug

I took it out in the living room to show my mom when she was here, and now I have taken the “finishing photos” that makes me see this rug as a finished item. I really enjoy that.

I also like that this is cheap material, great home decoration (if you like this style) and a colourful joy to work with (I have only positive things to say now when I’ve forgotten how bad my hand hurt after a couple of rows).

There might be more of these in my future…

  1. That is a beautiful rug. Great job!!! I have been making a few rugs of my own………..canvas, painted ones, and I did start to knit one. The knitted one is almost done, and is a round one like yours, but I just can’t do the last few finishing steps. I kind of have a style that supports the country braided rug, and a bit of contemporary too. Those colors would work GREAT in my home. I am envious.

  2. Oh how great. I love fabric strips, but I have been knitting with mine. Colourful bags on huge needles – and they kind of hurt the fingers too!

  3. Your rug is really beautiful, so colourful and jolly, it is a little bit of summer in the winter.

  4. The rug is wonderful! It will be really wonderful once winter rolls around again for you with all those lovely colors.

  5. Beautiful colors in your rug! These types of rugs always remind me of cozy nights in front of fireplaces. Of course I’ve never done that (not much need for it growing up in So. California, and although a bit more chilly in No. California not enough to fire it up) … so I’m not sure where this “memory” comes from. Ah, maybe from reading Laura Wilder’s “Little House on the Prairie” books when I was a child.

  6. absolutely sensational!!! I love it the colors the size everything it’s perfect!!! and yes I am sure your hand hurt!! what a beautiful result though!!! love it!! hugs Linda

  7. oh, i have been wanting to make one of those for a while, for my kitchen!

    yours looks so lovely! great, great work.

  8. Yes! The bags are cool aren’t they. I got the idea from a book called “Fast Knits: Fat Needles” I havent made one for myself yet, but people who have them say they get LOTS of comments. A couple of friends who have one each go out together with their bags, which is very sweet.
    Thankyou for your comments on my blog too.

  9. I LOVE this rug! I have been wanting to make one of these for so long and I even found one of those giant sized hooks at the thrift store. I’ve really got to do this! Thanks so much for sharing.
