Calamari Knitting

I made this rug from old T-Shirts, by cutting them into loops and attaching them into one long "yarn" like the book says. The loops were between 3/4" and 1" wide, and I used US size 35 needles.

T-Shirt Rug

All of the shirts were either stained, had a hole in them, or were failed tie dye experiments, so no useful T-Shirts were harmed in the making of this rug!

Very nice work! I bet you'll get a lot of visitors that comment. :)
 
Love the rug!
 
Wow!! Supercute rug. I think I need one now.
 
Great rug! I have my loops cut I jsut havent' found the time to join them.

About how many t-shirts did you use?
 
I love the rug!!! I would also like to know how many you used. We have t-shirts coming out our ears here!!!
 
Thank you for the post! I just joined the KAL so that I could ask everyone what needle size they were using with their calamari knitting. I am using 15's- way too small! Next rug I'll use the big ones. Your rug is darling! I'm inspired to keep going with mine. Great work!
 
I don't know how many T-shirts I used, probably around 25, but a lot of them were children's sizes.

It's not a huge rug, you can see it compared to my regular sized front door here. I still have some loops left over, and I could have made it larger, but I wanted to complete it while my family was out so I could surprise them with it!
 
Let us see the material of Coach Purses

clearly understands that if the use at low prices leather. Most of us are very valuable to Coach Luggage
