Upcycling Sheets into Crocheted Rag Rugs

3 years ago

I crocheted this rag rug in  a few  hours, from one single cream coloured sheet and half a queen sized blue duvet. No pattern needed;  just make a magic circle, squeeze in 8 to 11 half double crochets into the loop and start crocheting around. I varied the rows with  half double crochets and double crochet stitches using a size Q hook…fun, fast, frugal!

I ripped the sheets length wise  into strips about 1 1/2 ” , leaving an inch or so at the end, then snipping 1 1/2 inches over to start the next strip. No need to tie ends together; the strips were continuous.
