My great scrap adventure continues. Actually, it’s more like a great video game that I think I am losing! A huge amount of scraps went into this project (I first posted about this project here) and it was fun and easy. A scrap crocheted rug! I cut strips of scraps, 1 1/2″ wide, choosing my longest scraps. I then chain pieced them together. I did several batches. I have seen that some press the strips in half – hah! Not going to happen. Some roll the “fabric yarn” into a ball. Double Hah! Not going to happen. By making several batches instead of one large one, it was quite manageable. I crocheted a chain of 25 stitches, then single crocheted. This first rug was not planned with color at all, until I did the last round around the whole rectangle, for which I chose yellows. I love all the color fun going on in this rug! It now lays colorfully on the guest bathroom floor.
I liked it so much it was a no brainer to do another! This one is more planned – yellows, gold and browns. And this one is round. I really enjoyed crocheting it in a circle. It’s 24 inches diameter and may need a few more rows added to it. I’ll live with it a while and then decide.
AND…drum roll…no more yellow scraps! Of course, I am sure to need some soon for another project (Is “Quilter’s Law” something like “Murphy’s Law?!”)
