This easy-to-make crocheted rug is made from t-shirts that have been cut into tarn (T-shirt yARN) — a great way to recycle old cotton-knit garments and get a good-looking, high-use item in exchange. Your rug can be as large or small as you wish. The number of shirts to use depends on the sizes of the shirts and how large you want to make it. Machine washable and dryable, it’s an excellent rug for kitchen, bath, utility, or entry.
