Crochet rug made from old jersey tops
I'm something of a magpie and can't throw anything away if I think I can re-use it. So, I have a lot of stuff! I've been meaning to make a rug for my studio since I moved in a year ago and I finally got round to it. I cut up all my old jersey tops and then used a 12mm hook to crochet this rug, based on a doily pattern.
