Please note that the afghan shown above is one of the afghans that I personalized. You can personalize your afghan by creating a graph with the complete alphabet set I have designed for this afghan below. Your graph should ALWAYS be 65 stitches by 50 rows. There was a time when I made the personalized graphs by request. I have been told that a couple of the letters in the alphabet are a little off. Please read through the entire pattern before beginning.

Crochet T-shirt Rug

I always thought it was going to be difficult, but actually, it’s really quite easy, and no fancy instructions needed! Here’s how I made my own crochet rug from repurposed t-shirts! Step 1.

The basic idea is that the shirt is already in the round, so you’re cutting a continuous strip from the bottom hem up to the armpit. Step 3. Step 4. I used the largest crochet hook I had on hand, which was a size Q and started with 6 SC in the first round, doubled it to 12 in the second round, and slowly increased by multiples of 6 beyond that.
