the round rug is ready!
after i had used up the off white and light gray yarn the rug had the size of a large placemat. i saw it happen that a guest would pick up the thing of the floor and say, your placemat lies on the floor, where can i put it? therefore i started to crochet with the other colors of the same yarn and i have used up over 18 balls from my stash and the rug has a diameter of just over 90 cm. not very large but it is a nice size.
there is somewhat confusion caused by my complaining about the splitting yarn ‘light cotton’ of drops. the purple pouf i made of this yarn and that was fine to work with, at most, a bit stiff. then drops has renewed the yarn and created this splitting yarn. in my opinion no improvement, even though it contains more cotton.
if you want to make a round rug too, you can use my tutorial, see here for part 1. increase the number of stitches until the last row. but i have a tip for you to keep the rug completely flat. if the rug is getting larger than it may happen that at the edge it gets slightly wavy. if that’s the case, then crochet one row without increasing, after that row continue again with further increase like you did.
to complete this story about my round rug here some pictures of the details, just for fun.
