I’ve been dreaming of making a new rug for months. Crochet with such thick yarns is both hard and satisfying. My fingers hurt a bit, but then it worked soooo fast. In no time you can crochet something quite big! 🙂
I was inspired by many crocheters online who experiment with chunky/jumbo/mega crochet. Taking as basis one of the oldest pattern – “the granny square” – and making something new and modern was a perfect option for my new bed-side rug 🙂
I have used about 3 rolls of one of my favorite yarns, Zpagetti from Hoooked and a No. 12 crochet hook. The basic element is a classical granny square, connected to each other with a slip stitch row, while the edge is made of a round of double crochet stitches. I drew my inspiration from this gorgeous Granny Square Floor Rug.
