Knitted Rag Rug

I just finished knitting this rag rug - made entirely out of old bedsheets.
I tore the sheets into thin strips, and used it as "yarn".
It is so warm and comfy and soft!
I was inspired by Alli at One Pearl Button who got the pattern from Coco Knits.

  6. Thanks! The knitting was actually much easier than I expected, although perhaps it was because I tore the strips quite thin and used smaller needles than the pattern called for.
