After I rearranged the living room, we had this empty corner behind the couch that just needed a rug. I had it in my mind to put a round, crocheted rug of some kind there to add some texture and coziness. I thought it would be just the thing for some toys and a little play space there for the littles. Whether or not they actually stay ON the rug. But that's beside the point.
Problem was, I don't crochet.
However my sister does, and she happily crocheted a rug for me.
She said it only took her about 3 hours using this pattern, which was one of the easiest round rug patterns she found. How about that. :)
