Free Project Friday: Crochet for the Home

July 02, 2010, 09:48 am  Posted by Lark

Pulling together all that fine stitched inspiration for Monday’s Fresh Flickr Finds really put me in the mood for crochet. Pair that with a healthy dose of summertime redecorating, thrift shopping, and porch sitting impulses, and you get this project, the Greenhouse rug from AwareKnits™. (Look at Valerie’s post from earlier this week for another cool project from this book! Or Paige’s post for more on porch coziness!)

I love that this project combines a bit of unexpectedness with a really simple design: the perfect welcome to a handmade (and green) home. Plus, it’s stitched with jute. Imagine what this rug would look like on a bigger scale! There is a long holiday weekend coming up, after all….
