  1. this is pretty easy to follow :) and to the person that can’t afford so many balls of wool you can make the rug smaller requiring less wool :)

  2. Superdot2001 says:

    To the guest who said they could not afford 59 balls …… I think it’s only 58 balls, but these are 25g balls and most wool comes in 50g or 100g, so I don’t think it will be as expensive as you first thought ….. especially if you use craft yarn which is usually cheaper ( it also washes and dries better) ….

  3. wish there was a graphic patern to follow

  4. brilliant stuff

  5. cool, but, 59 balls of yarn i can’t afford that!
