Rag Rug Inspirations, How To’s and Patterns.

Well as I’m busy waiting for lots new yarn to arrive I decided to start a new rag rug project that I think is going to be rather large. I’m not sure how long it will take to complete but I am going to work on it for at least 2 hours everyday.

In the meantime I thought I would share a few resources with you.

You can find patterns for heart rag rug, ripple rag rug and granny style rag rug in both my Ravelry pattern store and my Etsy store.

I will be posting photographs of my new rag rug in the coming days so that you can see my work in progress.
