How to Make a Rag Rug

I had half a linen closet full of top sheets – the bottom sheets long gone. So what is a girl to do? Crochet a Rag Rug!

6 or more flat bed sheets
Hook: 15mm from Darn Good Yarn

The hook is from Darn Good Yarn is important to this project. It’s gorgeous, but it is also practical. It has a long handle to make it easier to keep a grip. Plus it is solid, you don’t have to worry about it breaking.

How to attach the strips

This pattern is nothing more than a simple hexagon crochet pattern. If you’re an old hat you’re probably laughing at yourself for not realized it. If you’re a newbie, just follow along.

(Find directions without images at the bottom of this post.)

sc = single crochet
slst = slip stitch
st = stitch
ss = same space

Create a magic ring (or however you like to start 6 sc in a loop).
Row 1: 6 sc in ring. slst to first sc.

Row 4: Ch 1. *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 2 sc. Repeat from * to * slst to first sc.
Row 5: Ch 1. *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 3 sc. Repeat from * to * slst to first sc.
Row 6: Ch 1. *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 4 sc. Repeat from * to * slst to first sc.
Row 7: Ch 1. *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 5 sc. Repeat from * to * slst to first sc.
Row 8: Ch 1. *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 6 sc. Repeat from * to * slst to first sc.

I assume you’re getting the idea. If in row 8 you do 6 sc, then in row 9 you’ll do 7 sc. And so on and so forth until you reach the size you want. (If you really need me to write it out for you, email me after you watch the video)

Once you reach the size you want, fasten off and weave the end.
