More knitting to use up some left over wool


I have been trying to get rid of some of the numerous left over balls of wool that I have stashed in boxes.  I am slowly diminishing the pile but there is still a way to go.  I think I will need to make a crocheted rug with the small bits of wool that I have. I would like to do one with hexagons rather than squares and I have seen some lovely examples on Pinterest.

Petals to Picots give instructions for joining the hexagons as you go.

Meet Me at Mikes shows you how to crochet a hexagon in ten minutes.

My difficulty would be that I would need to buy wool for the last round of the hexagon and the joining.  I guess I would be getting rid of scraps and I would only buy enough wool to make the rug.

In the meantime I have made a  hot water bottle cover.I also made a crocheted chevron rug for my son but will put that in another post after I have blocked the rug.

    The hexie rug looks amazing. What a great use of scraps. Love the hottie cover.

      Thank you. I enjoy knitting hottie covers as they are so quick to do.

  2. The hexies remind me of my Gramma – thank you! And I do want a hot water bottle cover like that! I wonder if I could sew a quilted one, as I don’t knit or crochet?

      Thanks Linda. I am sure with your skills you would be able to sew a quilted water bottle cover no trouble at all.
