T-shirt Yarn Rug Progress

I'm making progress on my T-shirt Yarn Rug! Right now it measures 69 cm (27"), and I realize that I forgot to measure it in my last updates.


I might be about halfway. I want it to be fairly large for my entrance, so visitors don't have to step off the rug before taking their boots off.

T-shirt count: 34.


Here's a close-up of the linen stitch I'm using. I've seen some pictures online of scarves using this stitch, and that might have to be a future project with all my yarn scraps!

I'm linking up to The Needle & Thread Network. Come see what other Canadian stitchers are up to:

  7. Very inspiring, as I have lots of misprinted fabrics to crochet. I'll have to look up how to do linen stitch, does it stay nice and flat?
