How to Crochet a Rug out of T-Shirtscomments (53) September 28th, 2010
Keep pulling until the entire strip has gone through the hole and give a final tug; you should have a join that feels nice and smooth and not like a knot.
3. Ready to crochet? With the jumbo hook, begin working with your homemade yarn into whatever shape you'd like—round, oval, or rectangular. I recommend single crochet for a solid, sturdy fabric, but you can try other stitches, too. Allow the strips to curl up and twist as you work to make a thick, durable rug. You'll find it can be a little more physically challenging to work at such a large gauge, but the reward is how quickly the piece will grow when your stitches measure 3/4 inch across!
It takes a lot of tees to make a decent-sized rug, but don't worry—there's no shortage of them! And for once, making a dent in this resource is actually good for the planet.
