Very often we throw away old worn clothes. And very much in vain! For example, you can make an original rug out of old jeans, and even those who are barely familiar with crocheting can make it.
You will need
- jeans - 12 pairs;
- hook number 10;
Let's get started:
1 So, first we need to make "yarn" out of them, that is, cut them and cut them into strips. We cut the jeans, cut off the seams, and then cut out long strips, the width of which should not exceed 1 centimeter.
2. Of course, it will be best if such a thread is continuous, because you must agree that we do not need extra nodes. This problem can be solved. As soon as you come to the bottom of the leg, cut out a strip so that it is exactly 2 times wider than the thread, then simply cut it in two.
3 Cut all the jeans into strips, then carefully wind the given "yarn" into a ball.
4 Let's start knitting a rug. As mentioned earlier, this is not difficult. First, we collect the required number of air loops. Keep in mind that while knitting, the width of the product will increase by about 5 centimeters.
5 After the air chain is dialed, we begin to knit the rug with single crochet. To make your product stronger, you should hook the hook on the two walls of the loop while knitting.
6 We knit the rug with single crochets until the very end. Be prepared for the fact that knitting with denim "yarn" is more difficult than usual. The difficulty lies mainly in the fact that the hinges are simply invisible. So take your time and do everything very carefully.
7 After you run out of the first tangle, take a new one and tie it with a double knot. The ends of the threads must be hidden in the loops of the product.
8 At the end of the work, you need to tie the rug with single crochet posts, and then hide the threads. The denim rug is ready!
