My giant knitted rug

This time last month I wrote a post about my amazing discovery whilst on holiday…the Sheep Shed in Ludlow, where I bought a pair of gigantic knitting needles! I shredded some jersey fabric and got to work. I have to sit on a stool as the needles are so long! I was going to make a bath mat, but once I had stood on it I decided that it simply had to be a super squishy rug to go by my bed.

My jersey fabric ready to go.

The first row

I love using two colours because it makes a lovely random pattern

I changed colours when I ran out of fabric
