How To Crochet A Rug Out Of T-Shirts

January 2009
15.0 mm (P/Q)
This pattern is available for free.

no yarn is required because you will be making your own out of recycled t-shirts or jersey fabric!

It gives me a thrill to make something new, that’s useful and beautiful, out of something old and unwanted. Oversized, corporate logo-ed T-shirts are a plentiful resource at your local thrift store or maybe even in your own closet. One of my favorite uses for them is to cut them into strips and crochet them into rugs, like your grandmother’s old braided rag rugs, but much easier to make!

You will need:

T-shirts (anywhere from two on up, depending on size rug desired), the bigger the better
Giant crochet hook (I used 15 mm)
