In the process of making the crocheted floor rug for my daughters’ room from recycled t-shirt yarn (also known as ‘tarn’ and by the brand name ‘zpagetti’) I found a pile of patterns to draw inspiration from. I am now slightly stalled in the process of making a rug for my son’s room, so hope that by revisiting those tutorials to share with you I might kick start myself back into action!

Bauta Witch has a tutorial for creating a crocheted rug, that includes lighting! There is an English translation at the bottom of the post.
This Ripple rug pattern on the Sweet and Knit blog is written in Spanish, but is easily translated and results in a gorgeous floor rug.
It has worked! I am off to pick up the hook again – and hopefully have some photos of the finished product before too long!
