    Hey - that makes those "grandma" rugs that all our grandparents seemed to

    have, right? the braided circular ones.

    Here was a crotchet rug I made with yarn:

    (I had used four strands of yarn held together...)

    OH - and I saw somewhere a pattern to make these strips from our leftover

    plastic shopping bags and then make it into a reusable shopping bag.

    Do you have directions for crochetting ? How do you fix the stripes ? Do

    you roll the material or pleat it ? I have tried this before but didn't get

    the hang of it. Now I think that I can do the slits etc.thanks.

    I would love crochet directions...I think they would make awesome throw rugs. I go thru rugs like crazy and if I can stich and wash it would be perfect!

    Most grandma rugs that I know of were made of wool scraps or
    old wool clothing. This was a bit different than the link I just sent for rag
    rugs and will last longer as well. Lisa

    Here is one for those:
    I know that if you are going to use wool clothes like from a
    thrift store, pants and dresses seem to be the best value (the most wool strips
    for your money).
