Sisal Pinwheel Rug


IMG_4541, originally uploaded by skamama.

IWP's Crocheted Gifts, by Kim Werker is hitting stores now. Not only was I the technical editor for the book, I also contributed the Sisal Pinwheel Rug. I used a large spool (about 2200 feet) of sisal bundling twine that I found at the home improvement store. This project was really fun to make and quick to work up on a big hook, but I give tips on how to work with sisal in the book. As you're working you'll notice that your project is a little stiff, but you'll be surprised by the change in drape once you block it.
