Crochet T-Shirt Yarn Rug (Free Pattern)

I love this rug. It’s 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 rows! 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 rows.

*may not actually be 1000 times!
