Some of you may recall how I've been crazy about knit and crochet items for the home, especially things that are big and chunky..... well, I finally have a pattern to contribute to your home! I finished my Chunky Seed Stitch Knit Rug that is so very cozy on the toes. If you can get over knitting with big needles and doubling super chunky yarn, this will be a breeze. Some of you may be annoyed with the seed stitch, but it is worth it. The stitch makes the rug so cozy and gives it a fun, textured look.
The size I knitted is about 2 feet by 3 feet, but it can be easily adjusted to make it the size you want
- Note that the gauge isn't too important -- in other words, don't spend a lot of time trying to match my gauge. Create your own swatch and figure out how many stitches you'll need to make your desired width.
- For my rug, my gauge was about 3 stitches and 4 rows = 2 inches
- 6 skeins Wool Ease Thick and Quick or another super bulky weight yarn. The rug is knitted holding two strands together
- Size US 19 (15mm) circular needles
Note: I knitted this rug so that the length (the longer side of the rug) was the amount I casted on (this was because I had ambitions to make a bigger rug, but liked the look of the smaller one as I got going --- and well, I was excited to finish this!)
Holding two strands together, cast on 50 stitches.
Row 1: K1, P1, repeat from * to end
Row 2: P the K STS and K the P STS to end
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until rug reaches desired length
Bind off in established pattern very loosely. Tie off and weave in ends.
Yes, that's it! Super simple but super great looking.... Enjoy!
