Stained Glass Rug
Note: the size of upholstery piping cord used in the project is Upholstery Piping Cord 22/32” 100% cotton 14, (34, 62 yrds). There’s two types: the cord that looks like rope is a little easier to work with but less cushy, the stuff that looks like cotton stuffed into a tube is more cushy, but doesn’t hold up well if you need to unravel. I used the second option.
This colorful rug is a great introduction to padded crochet, often used in Irish crochet. Color-changing yarn is crocheted around piping cord into a round motif that offers multiple modular configurations.
GAUGE 1 circle should be 6” across with about 14 sts per inch around the cord. Gauge is not critical for this pattern.
