Utility room rug


The mat down by my washer and dryer is showing signs of wear. It was crocheted many moons ago with strips of gingham fabric and it used to live in my kitchen. It’s time to say goodbye and replace it with something new.

The new rug is in progress…

…five strands of yarn, made up of two random DK, one random worsted, and two olive green worsted that used to be a cardigan and were knitted up double stranded and therefore frogged and wound into balls double stranded. 10mm hook.

It’s coming out a little wider than expected (tight chain, I guess) but that’s okay. It’s just half double crochet in rows, mindless crochet that I can do without having to concentrate on a pattern.
