These hand knit throw rugs were knit in a 100% cotton yarn. Knit in a simple garter stitch with 2 strands of cotton yarn held together for extra thickness. Rugs are shown in variegated color combinations of ecru, lime green and purple; and ecru, orange and purple. The pattern came from Suss Cousins Hollywood Knits Style book. This book was given to me as a birthday gift from a friend. In return for this wonderful gift, I made the ecru, green and purple rug for her birthday. I have found many great patterns from this book as well as interesting yarns from her online yarn store. Recently, I finished my second rug shown in the color combination of ecru, orange and purple and now have it posted in my Etsy shop. These throw rugs are a great addition to any room!

I had so much fun making this tote and absolutely love the way it came out. I took strips of a yellow floral fabric and knit them together in a stockinette stitch. These knit strips are what make up the outside of the bag and give it a very unique texture. The striped fabric make up the base, top edge, handles, inner lining and inside pocket. It's the perfect size for your everyday needs!
