Crochet Pattern: Rag Rug

Crochet Pattern: How to make a rag rug from an old bed sheetRag rugs are a timeless classic in home decor. They are a great way to repurpose old fabrics and can be used in just about any room of the house. This week, I transformed a plain, old bed sheet into a brightly dyed, crocheted rag rug for our guest bathroom.

Before you begin this project, you'll need some rag yarn. It's fairly simple to make, but if you've never made rag yarn before, here's my basic tutorial for creating rag yarn from bed sheets. You really don't need much more than scissors and a ruler to make rag yarn.

Now on to my crochet pattern. Instead of working my rag rug all in sc, I like to add an extra layer of interest with an up and down stitch pattern. The finished measurements of this rug are approximately 19 x 31 inches.



Loosely ch 24.

Row 1: Sc in 3rd ch from hook, *dc in next ch, sc in next ch, repeat from * to last ch, dc in last ch, turn.

Row 2: Ch 2, sk 1st dc, *dc in next sc, sc in next dc, repeat from * across, dc in ch 2 of previous round.

Repeat Row 2 until rug is 31 inches long. Fasten off.

Of course you may need to remove any curious, furry friends from your new rug before placing it in the room of your choice :)
