The Merry-Go-Round Rug is a lovely design that is quick to work up with jumbo weight (7) yarn and a large, 15mm crochet hook! It’s the perfect extreme crochet home decor project to add a beautiful touch to your room! Like a Merry-Go-Round, this pattern’s rounds go around and around, worked in continuous spirals without joining. The repetitive pattern is both fun and therapeutic to crochet, and easy to get a hang of in just a few rounds. The size of the rug can easily be adjusted to be however large or small as you’d like, depending on how much yarn you use.
