The Partly Sunny Half Circle Rug – by: funkifybers.com

I’m excited to bring you July’s Readers’ Choice Pattern, the winning vote for July was a Rug, and here’s what I came up with.  June wasn’t a very sunny month here in Alaska, so I thought a little sunshine all year round would be just the cure.  This rug is made with all Double Crochet stitches, and uses a tapestry crochet technique.  It’s a great way to play with some fun summer shades and perfect the semi-circle.  Please don’t forget to vote for the current month’s Reader’s Choice Event – Where you pick the pattern; you can visit the Readers’ Choice page here, or simply vote in the right side bar.

20in. by 40in.

Supplies:

  • 6.0mm Hook

    • Hot Orange
    • Red

Notes:

    1. Eeek I do not. I tried to whip one out for you, lol, but the programs that can easily do it don’t do a semi circle, at least that I know of. Would it be helpful to you if I drew it out by hand, I could do this a bit quicker? It wouldn’t be perfect, I am unable to get it on a computer generated format right away, as its very time consuming. Email me if you like funkifybers@gmail.com. Thanks Felicia!
