When I found myself with some discontinued yarn I wasn't quite sure what to do with it. It's chunky and a bit stiff. After mulling through Ravelry I began this project, a pattern by Sami Jo Fitzgerald, but still couldn't decide what it was. A baby blanket? A throw? A cat mat? It was only when I put it on the floor to take a picture of it that I knew what it was...a rug! A cute star rug.
I used Lion Brand Chunky USA and an 8mm hook. This rug is now up for sale in my Etsy shop. I really recommend this project if you're looking for something without counting. It's also pretty portable and would be great for scraps as well.
