Make a Rag Rug

  • Handcraft Studio Sale 10368 San Pablo Avenue El Cerrito, CA, 94530 United States (map)

Get hooked! Rag rugs are super fun and super fast to make, an excellent weekend project. In this class you will learn how to make a classic circular rag rug using yarn made from fabric and a crochet hook. No prior knowledge of crochet required—you'll learn how to do all the stitches needed to start and grow your rug as well as how to change colors and attach fresh balls of fabric yarn. We will also cover repurposing old tee shirts/sheets/fabric into usable yarn. 

Leave class with your rug well underway—or completed if you're fast or making a small rug...the finished size is up to you! 

Class fee includes five balls of fabric yarn and a crochet hook. If you'd like to make your own fabric yarn in class, please bring fabric scissors and old tee shirts or sheets.
