Hooked Rag Rugs

Finally after quite a few years I have finished the twin rug to Neon. I started this rug many years ago and never kept going except when I was demonstrating how to make a hooked Rag Rug.

Like its twin it is mainly made from T-shirts. They are a knitted textile which means the strips don’t fray when you cut them. Check out the pictures. The rug isn’t finished as I now need to cut the loops to give a neater effect.
