I've had a lot of wool sitting on my shelf for a while. I realized it was all some shade of blue so I decided to make a rug with it. I've done a few braided rugs on my sewing machine but once they're about two feet wide they get very difficult to work with. I wanted this rug to be large and heavy so I thought crocheting may be a little easier, and it was.
I cut all the wool into strips 1 1/4" wide and stitched them all together end to end. I used a jumbo crochet hook and just a single stitch the whole time. I used about 13 yards of scrap wool, and the rug weighs about 15 pounds.
