Crochet a T-Shirt Rug
A new pattern that is available on Yarnspirations is the Daisy Diamond Rug. Originally, it calls for Cotton Yarn but I decided to use some discounted T-Shirt Yarn from Spinrite Factory Outlet E-Tent instead. See the Discounted T-Shirt Yarn Now.
I used 4 balls of Loops and Threads T-Shirt that is currently on clearance. Currently, there are 5 different colours available. Those colours include Lemon, Cherry, Turquoise, Grape and Back Licorice. I will tell you straight up, this yarn’s striping is deceptive when you see it as a ball verses a finished project. The striping allows the colours to meld together and really does a superb job of hiding dirt and pet fur. I was pleasantly surprised by it.
There are 3 balls per bag at the E-Tent. You will need to buy 2 balls and then you will have two balls left over. You can use the yarn for pot holders and etc.
You don’t need to alter the pattern at all. You will just need a 10 mm size N Crochet Hook with the T-Shirt Yarn.
Get the free pattern, it’s called Diamond Daisy Rug.
Clarification – T-Shirt Yarn Balls Quantity
With the original pattern, it calls that you use multiple strands at one time to acheive the thickness. For the t-shirt version, the yarn is thick enough on it’s own without having to use multiple strands. This is how you use only 4 balls of the t-shirt yarn.
Also, I have made a video on demonstrating this pattern for learning how to ready crochet diagrams. I crocheted my rug in about 3 hours. You can follow my tutorial to help you. A crochet diagram is available to you in the free pattern.
