Locker Crochet Rug

The last post reminded me that I also started another rug -- a locker crochet rug. I haven't made much progress on this item yet, but was inspired to try this technique after watching a wool artist working on a project using wool rather than fabric strips. My rug is made with fabric strips, but my brain is now thinking it may be a great idea to try this with roving or very loosely spun wool yarn and felt the rug. That would make for a very durable and beautiful rug. I found a cool video on U tube that very clearly demonstrates the technique for locker crochet rug making. You can check out the video HERE.

Do you have tons of extra yarn in your stash? Or lots of bits and scraps left over from other projects? You could use up any scraps of yarn using this technique. I would probably put several strands (like 3 or 4) of yarn together to give the rug more substance. What a fun way to use up your leftovers! Have fun making your very own locker crochet rug!
