A simple garter stitch rug is a perfect project for beginners – or anyone needing a quick gift – because you can knit one up over a weekend. This rug is made using just the knit stitch and a double strand of heavy yarn on jumbo needles.

This rug can be made with any type of super bulky yarn you like. For a plush rug, use a soft, lofty wool or a novelty yarn. For a harder- wearing rug, a heavy cotton yarn or a sturdy rug wool make good choices. The simplicity of the design shows off the texture of the different yarns, making it easy to “design your own.”
