Rug Beginnings

Untitled

Hey everyone! Is your summer going as fast as mine? Before any more time slips away, I thought I'd show you a new project that I started. My mom was out west for a bit of the summer, and she brought me back some Pendleton Wool selvages so that I could make her a rug...

My first attempts at crocheting it didn't go so well. I should reword. It was impossible. The selvage was just too messy and thick. So, I had to give it a hair cut. You can see a before and after in the photo above. I think trimming the selvage took much longer than it will be to finish the crocheting!

I'm using a 25mm massive wooden hook. I love it. It is a bit of a work out, but I'm hoping the end result will make it worth it! I'll have an update soon!
