It is February and we still have a Christmas rug in front of the stove.
Time to change.
In an effort to work only with stash yarn (and hopefully use up a lot in 2016), I have made a kitchen rug!
Inspired by Lion Brand’s Step Lively Rug, I searched my stash for cotton yarn. A few months back, our local A.C. Moore had its grand opening and I scored 10 skeins of free Premier Home Cotton yarn. I had picked Christmas colors thinking I would make Attic 24’s Christmas wreath (I never did), so I had cream, red, blue and green to use.
This rug reminds me of rag rugs I used to see growing up in the 70’s.
I used 8 skeins, making this entire project less than $10.00 (for me, only the cost of the rug pad, as I got the yarn for free).
I attached a rug pad to the back using a simple stitch. This will allow me to cut the stitch, remove the pad and be able to wash the rug when necessary.
For barely any money, a nice change to the kitchen!
