Hand Knit a Giant Rug with Giant Baa Baa Yarn
Due to the massive amount of requests I got for this, we simply had to make a tutorial showing you how to make your very own rug. You will love it and your pets will love it. To make a larger round rug simply buy an extra kg of yarn to grow your rug!
MATERIALS: 2kg of Acrylic Baa Baa Yarn or Tube Baa Baa Yarn, you can also use chunky chenille Baa Baa Yarns but you will chain 3 instead of 2 in the beginning and need 6 balls of yarn.

TOOLS: Just a scrap of yarn or a little stitch holder to mark the end of each round.
We’re working single crochet rounds because of the bulkiness of the Baa Baa Yarn, don't complete each round instead continue around in a spiral. It’s important to mark the end of each round as you finish it, so you can keep track.
sl st=slip stitch
Create a slip knot. Ch 4.
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in your original slip knot loop. (Pull the tail gently to close the loop).
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in the BACK LOOP of each sc around. – 12 sc (Remember to mark the final stitch of your round and move it to the new round after finishing each round!)
Rnd 3: Work 2 sc in the BACK LOOP of the first stitch and then 1 sc in the BACK LOOP of the next stitch. Repeat around. – 18 sc
Rnd 4: Work 2 sc in the BACK LOOP of the first stitch and then 1 sc in the BACK LOOP of the next 2 stitches. Repeat around. – 24 sc
Rnd 5: Work 2 sc in the BACK LOOP of the first stitch and then 1 sc in the BACK LOOP of the next 3 stitches. Repeat around. – 30 sc
Rnd 6: Work 2 sc in the BACK LOOP of the first stitch and then 1 sc in the BACK LOOP of the next 4 stitches. Repeat around. – 36 sc
Continue in this until your yarn is finished and you are happy with the size. Make yours as big or small as you like.
- You’re increasing 6 stitches per round. Count and make sure at the end of each round!
- You’re working 1 additional SINGLE sc per repeat, each round. So your increases (the part where you work 2 sc into 1 sc, thus increasing) are becoming farther and farther apart.
