“We love functional items for the home which is why we were so excited when Kristen came up with this gorgeous Ombre Tapis (which is French for “rug”) using Rowan’s new All-Seasons Chunky yarn! This stunning 2x3 rug can be used in many areas of your home—as a kitchen rug, bath mat, entry rug, or in the bedroom. Best of all, it’s colorful enough to match with a variety of color schemes, and easy to customize to fit your needs. The pattern uses just eight balls of the Rowan All Seasons Chunky (which is super sturdy and machine washable) and the skeins are held double to create a lovely and subtle ombre, or shaded effect. The rug is knit on US size 15 needles, making it a super speedy project as well!
Kristen’s inspiration for the project stems from a rag rug her mother made years ago. She remembers how many hours were spent braiding the strips of fabric together until there was enough length to sew together for a proper sized rug. It was used in her family’s kitchen for years, and her mom still has it and uses it regularly. Kristen’s colorful Ombre rug was inspired by the colors of that original rug but updated into a style that could be easily made by any knitter. The simple seed stitch pattern adds texture and loft, but makes it easy and accessible, even for beginner knitters. Kits are available to make Kristen’s version of the rug, or mix and match 8 colors of your own choosing to create your custom rug! We hope you’ll enjoy using this lovely “Tapis” in your home!”
