Rugtastic

So the old sheepskin rug I’ve had forever was looking very tatty.  Not helped by my mums dog deciding that it tasted scrumlishous last time he visited.   The only solution…crochet a replacement.  I had already some thick Robin’s chunky yarn in a delicious cream which felt so nice and soft.  Perfect for naked feet.  And a quick shopping trip produced a brilliant rich red which matched the other red accents in the living room.  Therefore my new hobby was put to use to create a  cheap and cheerful rug to brighten up the room.

A search of Ravelry and I discovered a wonderful pattern which reminded me of a spring flower.  It was suprisingly easy to follow the steps (even for a complete newby like me!)  However I’m not convinced I managed to do the middle sections correctly.  The overall result however is delightful. Chunky bright and soft and wonderfully cheap to do for £5 of yarn and a few hours of time.
