It's taken me one year exactly, but I've finally finished my recycled t-shirt rug! I started this project last year when we were away for a few days over spring break, and I finished it yesterday just as spring break was beginning. I'm so glad it's done, and I can move on to other things!
Finished length is 132 cm (52") and I used approximately 47 t-shirts to complete it. All of the t-shirts were either destined for the rag pile, cast-offs from friends, cast-offs from thrift shops, or thrifted for $2 or less.
I knit it on my KnitPicks interchangeable needles (size 12mm), with the longest cables I could find. It got quite heavy at the end, and my hands got tired with the weight as well. I still like how the linen stitch looks with a change of colour in each row. Because it's so thick, it does feel nice under your feet too!
