Learn How To Make This Giant Crochet Rug Using Your Fingers!
What is better than the feeling of a soft warm crocheted rug beneath your feet?
Chandi is the owner and founder of Expression Fiber Arts, a company that offers gorgeous, hand-dyed luxury yarn.
In this step-by-step tutorial, she demonstrates how she created this lovely lovely, giant circular rug using just her fingers – now crochet hook or sewing needle in sight.
As material, she used is roving which is wool that has been cleaned and prepped.
Roving is normally used for hand-spinners to spin into their own yarn.
For this particular rug, she used a soft merino wool which is more expensive than other types of roving.
However, you can just as easily use Corriedale wool or BFL (Blue-Faced Leicester) wool, or even cotton, bamboo or any other type of wool.
Another, much cheaper option, is to cut fabric into 2-3 inch strips and use that. In total, Chandi used 7.5 lbs of roving for this gorgeous rug which is 3 feet across.!
