Neat idea! I need a new bath mat, too. I want to mention, though, that t-shirt and sheet material work up totally different. T-shirt "yarn" will have to be cut probably twice as wide as sheet material because it tends to roll in on itself. T-shirts would make a softer rug, though.

The blogger who posted the pattern stated that she used 1-1/2" strips. I made a similar rug from old sheets but used 1" strips. Two things you should know 1) use circular needles because it becomes very heavy and working with straight needles that size is hard, and 2) it is very hard on the wrists and hands to knit with cloth. Especially if you have arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, you will need to take it slowly.

At last the answer to that age-old question of what to do with old linens, comforter covers, and other fabrics -- think of those old lightweight jeans that are too worn at the hem to wear any longer! t-shirts and sweatshirts - sweatpants. The designer has a link to directions for the strips of 'yarn' and how to join them - and the options are many, depending only upon texture and colour bath mat, door mat, bedside mat, kitchen mat, or mat for the dog to sleep on, and the list goes on

My daughter would love this for her college dorm. It is a fantastic use of old sheets, covers and linens. I often wonder what to do with them when they get old and ratty. Even old towels could be incorporated. The result is quite stylish and modern.

I love this. I'm a college student and I know that I, and even a few of my family members would be willing to make this for me for my future townhome as a way to brighten up my bathroom. Pretty easy pattern too.
