This is using some of the small remnants of wool in my stash. The wool I have used to join the hexagons together comes from a jumper I no longer wore so I frogged that. I think I will just leave the rug this shape as I have no idea how to make it a rectangle.
I now have my frogged wool ready to use so have been able to complete some of the hexagons I had started.
This is a project that will keep me going for a while. It will reduce the wool stash very slowly.
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.
