I've been making a rug.
With a huge crochet hook (22mm to be precise).
I purchased three 200g balls of luscious James C Brett marble chunky and rewound them into six balls of 100gs.
This created the most scrumptious mix of coastal colours which would match my duck egg blue and sandy colours bedroom (and hopefully cover a stain that was driving me mad on the carpet!).
I crocheted all the way with six strands of chunky which wasn't easy. It was far more of a "whole arm action coming from the shoulder" rather than the usual delicate wrist action required for crocheting with a 4mm hook and a strand of DK.
The result though was a bouncy thick and surprisingly lovely foot massaging rug that was relatively quick to hook up.
The size of the hook, combined with the yarn made it grow at an alarming rate and I made it in one sitting on Friday night.
I then added a lovely fringe to it which completely finished it off and once I lay it on the bedroom floor I grinned from ear to ear with satisfaction
So ...... I guess you would like to see it!?
Here it is .......................................
An another .... this time without a blurry egde!
Not bad for a total of four hours work and £15!
I love it! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
