Crocheted Rug Giveaway

I just finished making a crocheted throw rug from the remainders of skeins of rug yarn I had used in other rugs over the past couple of years.


It's a hodge-podge, helter-skelter design and is colorful, to say the least.  Although Papa Pea says he really likes the multi-colors and the way it turned out, we have plenty of rugs so I'm offering this one as a giveaway here on my blog.

The rug yarn used was a combination of cotton and rayon and 100% polyester.  I've used these two rug yarns together many times before, and they make a sturdy rug that wears like iron. 

The rug is completely machine washable and dryable and reversible.  The size is about 35" (including fringe) long by 21-1/2" wide.  Depending on the surface on which you use it, you might want to pin a rubber rug backing on the floor side to avoid any chance of slippage.  (I sure don't want anyone to end up on back or bum or possibly causing injury to oneself.)  When I use these rugs in areas where they seem they could be the least bit slippery, I cut a piece of rug backing slightly smaller than the rug and pin it in place on four corners with medium-sized safety pins.

If you're interested in being put in the drawing for this rug, please let me know by this coming Tuesday, April 17th, by 9 p.m. when I'll turn off my computer for the night.  I'll draw a name sometime Wednesday and announce the winner then.  (I'm sorry to say I have to limit entries to folks in the contiguous United States for this one because of shipping costs.)

Anyone interested?

It's a lovely rug and I'm sure whoever wins it will love it. Sadly I'm not in the US so can't be part of the contest but I totally understand as shipping is stupid expensive.

POOF went my comment.

OK... Quickly.... Being in our 80's, we don't have any throw rugs in our house. Fear of tripping, etc.

But I'm sure someone will really enjoy your lovely rug!

Very pretty! Do you use doubled up yarn? What size hook? I’m still working on my wool sweater but I took a little break. Spring cleaning interrupted because we have company coming in two weeks. Time to clean out some stuff.

wisps of words - I totally understand your fear of tripping. Unfortunately, I do it all the time and I can't blame anything but my own feet! I even fall UP stairs.

I talked with my daughter regarding your "POOF" problem when trying to comment here. She suggested you try commenting as "Anonymous" and see if that helps. (Then sign your name - wisps of words - to the comment so I know it's you!) Switching to an "Anonymous" commenter each time you want to comment here might be too much of a bother, but she didn't know what else to suggest. I'm STILL having fits trying to get the "Reply" box to appear when I want to leave a comment to anyone else's comments here. Grrrrr!

Mama Pea said...

Katie C. - Yes, I work the rugs with two skeins of rug yarn at once. The hook is a Size K.
