Bulky Knit Rug


The Bulky Knit Rug is a beginner-friendly free knitting pattern you don't want to miss. You only need to know how to knit and purl in order to create this soft and sophisticated design. Plus, this knit area rug is machine washable since the yarn used is made from polyester. The knitted rug is made using exceptionally bulky yarn, so in order to keep costs down, the designer found yarn designed for a size 11 needle and simply doubled it up to get a bulky yarn that knits well on size 50 needles for a reasonable price. The end result is truly eye-catching and will add a nice bit of warmth to any space in your home.

I have been thinking about painting my bedroom a different color and getting some fresh things for it. This rug would work very well beside the bed. I am trying to imagine it in a soft yellow and maybe green? Not sure yet. Anyway, I wonder how heavy it would be to work on as it gets bigger. My arms don't always cooperate with my ambition!

How do you keep it from slipping on the floor? I am afraid someone will step on it and the rug will slide.

There are several products that can be purchased and spray the back of the rug with to prevent slippage. Elmer's school glue works, I use it on slippers all the time.

Doesn't Elmer's glue wash out when you wash it?

Take super bulky/super chunky yarn, hold two strands together, and knit with ginormous size 50 needles, and voila! You have an easy-peasy rug! Although the rug looks great in the heather gray, I'm sure it would look good in any solid color, or any self patterning yarn for that matter.
