Crochet Watermelon Rug

Sunday, May 25, 2014

A few months ago I had an idea to crochet a watermelon rug for Willow's room! I mean, because what kid (and adult) doesn't love watermelons! I used Zpagetti yarn, which is so fun to work with, and you can crochet rugs and bowls and all sorts of things, its stretchy and 100% cotton. Anyway, I finished it a while back, and then because I loved it so much, and I got some great feedback about it,  I decided to make another! And I am planning to make even more!


I just put the second one that I made up in my Etsy Shop. My Etsy store has been laying dormant for a while, so it only has this one crochet watermelon rug in it at the moment, but I have a few other things to fill it up a little more!

I realised that even though I had shared my rug on my Instagram (I'm @yellowdandy if you want to follow along) and on my Facebook page, I never actually did a blog post about it. What was I thinking!

So here you go! Here is my favourite new creation! And you can tell that Willow likes it too, every time I tried to take pictures of it, she just wanted to be on top of it!

  5. That rug is stunning and I will have to check out your store! How long have you been crocheting and how long did this take to make? I enrolled to learn in a course recently but had to pull out on the day thanks to sick kids (the story of my life)!

  7. Obviously they are not going out of business or those signs would have been gone two years ago! When you see signs like these around for more than a few months, they should serve as red alerts. biev

  13. Many of the looms that tribal weavers use are wood. Wood reacts to heat, cold and dry or moist air. The loom can warp. Hence, the reason for some of the irregularities. Best rugs for outdoors

  14. With moth eggs on the backside of the rug one will see little white lines. This is not good as the wool on the back may have been eaten so that when one vacuums the front of the rug, the wool comes out! If the rug is new, moth damage would be most unusual and is not a concern. Rug Source

  15. Third, you need to conclude what will be the utilization of the carpet. For instance, assuming you will purchase a mat for your youngster's room you want to observe a decent quality floor covering that will warm the room thinking about that the kids invest the greater part of their energy playing on it. https://rugsource.com/living-room-rugs
