Got Ravelry?

I've known about Ravelry for some time now, but never joined. Why didn't you twist my arm and make me join? Now I'm super addicted, what a great community. I'm neesypea over there too, so add me ok?

One of the things I've been working on is a crochet rag rug....

Crochet Rag Rug

fabric ball for rag rug

It's for my downstairs bathroom, which is painted a deep sky blue (the people who lived here before us, painted it that color), and I added apple green as an accent color.
I keep running out of fabric though. It took a lot more fabric strips than expected, but I'm determined to only use what I have, so we'll see how it turns out!


I'm working on a rag-rug crochet pattern and video on how to prepare your fabric strips, to share with all y'all as well! Stay tuned!!

That looks GREAT! Mine doesn't look nearly that organized, and I got so frustrated it became a potholder! Please post when its done, it looks fantastic so far! Keep up the good work, and inspiring posts!!

I'm considering making one for my apartment, if my fiance likes the idea, and yours is my favorite I've seen. I know the basic technique, but what size hook did you use? How wide are your strips? Did you use basic cotton fabric?

Cassandra - Thank you! Yes I used regular cotton fabric, that I believe were 1 inch wide and used a Boye size Q 15.75mm, I hope that helps!!
