Rag rug, and mitered square
My old-tshirt-rag rug has been finished for about a week now. I used the calamari method, and it took around 10 shirts (some youth sized, some adult) on US36 needles. I must admit, my hands tensed up sometimes - it was one of those projects where a few rows at a time was usually enough. Nonetheless, the rug worked up pretty quickly.
I cut the t-shirt strips a bit too thick at first, and soon learned not to do that. So my gauge varied ... but since I intended it as a mat for the dog to lie on, that's no big deal. I'll be more careful next time!

Just wondering... what was the t-shirt strip width that turned out to be your favorite?
And what size is the rug from 10 shirts?
