Crochet A Gorgeous Mandala Floor Rug
In this tutorial we’ll be making a beautiful crochet rug, made from T-shirt yarn. The pattern uses US terms and stitches include slip stitch (sl st); double crochet (dc); chain (ch); increase (inc) and a magic ring. T-shirt yarn (also called Zpagetti) in two colours that complement each other. You'll need about threes cones of yarn in total.A crochet hook in a size suitable for t-shirt yarn. I'm using a 15mm hook.A large darning needle for sewing in the ends.A pair of scissors. Using the main colour yarn, make a magic ring and secure with a stitch. Pull the ring closed. Chain 3 (counting as 1 dc), work another dc in the same stitch, then work 2dc in each stitch around. Chain 3 (counting as 1 dc), work 2dc in the next stitch, then *1dc, 2dc* around. Chain 3 (counting as 1 dc), chain 2, skip a stitch, then *1dc, ch2, sk 1 st* around. Chain 3 (counting as 1 dc), work 2 dc in the ch2 space, work 1dc in the underlying dc, then *inc, 1dc in dc* around. Change colour. Change colour.
