Last Christmas I made a rug for my sister, to match the colours of things she and her husband already had in their sitting room. I thought a round rug would be nice so I used the pattern I had already used for the round cushion to make the rug and just kept on knitting until it seemed big enough for a rug (though it’s not massive). When it got a few rows bigger than the cushion was, I transferred it onto a round needle (though it’s not knitted in the round) because it would no longer fit onto straight needles.
I backed it with some quite thick fabric (though I don’t remember exactly what it was) to make it stronger and help it keep its shape.
Such hard work has gone into this. It looks lovely. Well done x
Thanks! It was quite therapeautic to knit something so big, without really having to follow a pattern (except for the stripes)!
