Tailgate Rag Rug
Note: Yarn A is held double throughout. Do not cut A until the end of Strip 9.
Pattern description from Mason-Dixon Knitting: “One of our favorite games is See How Few Ends You Have to Weave In. This pattern makes a strip of two log cabin squares. It uses only one very long piece of yarn and a bunch of short strips of rags. Lots of rag ends (worth it!) but only two yarn ends (a relief!).
This pattern makes a 12” x 24” (30cm x 61 cm) block. Combine as many blocks as you like. The illustrated rug take 3 blocks and is 24” x 48” (60cm x 121cm)
A: Pisgah Yarn & Dying Co., Inc. Peaches & Cream Double Worsted, 16 oz (.45 kg) cone, 400 yds (365m) cotton, 4 cones
B: Rag balls, aka 1” wide rag strips. Use all one color, or vary them as you like.
