First Impressions

This is a lot of yarn! Although each skein is 131 yards, it's super bulky so you get a good amount! 

I was also pleasantly surprised at the softness of the cotton. If I were to cut up one of my t-shirts, I don't think it would be as soft as this recycled cotton yarn. 

One thing I did notice about the yarn when I was working with it is that the thickness was not consistent throughout, specifically the white color I used. (The dark gray color I used was consistent throughout). It did not effect the outcome of my project, but it's just something that caught my eye when I was using it.

Crochet Pattern

This t-shirt style yarn is perfect for rugs, so I made a simple rug with striping! I will be using them for my bathroom and I'm already loving how thick and sturdy it feels under my feet.

I went with a really simple stitch except I mixed it up just a bit. I used the moss stitch (also known as linen stitch and many other names) but instead of doing the traditional single crochet with this stitch, I swapped it for half double crochets for a looser stitch (plus it works up much more quickly!).

My puppy has already partially claimed it.. his favorite spot to snooze during the day is in the bathroom (although I find it a rather odd spot to sleep) so he will be using it a lot!

Since this pattern is so easy, I'm offering the ad-free PDF printable/downloadable for free to everyone.
