This rug is one of the first things I made when I received my Hoooked T-Shirt yarn stash. It took me ages to get the circular shape right – for some reason circular crochet turns into a hexagon after a certain number of rounds! And the thickness of T-shirt yarn amplifies this problem by about 1000 times.* I finally found a good method of keeping my circle circular – just move the increase to a different position on alternating rounds.

*may not actually be 1000 times!

Materials

Notes (please read these first!)

  • The stitch count for each row is given in [] at the end of each row.
  • The rug is crocheted in a spiral shape – you will not join to the starting stitch at the end of each round
  • It is really helpful to place a stitch marker on the first stitch of each round so that you can keep track of your stitch counts
