Of course, with the perversity of a cat she would then stretch, wake up and follow me out of the door ever-hopeful for an extra saucer of milk.
So here’s the next idea in my “Knitting Ahead” series: to make a cozy rug for all the cold spots in your house. Do you have a place in the house where your feet feel chilly in the winter? Standing by the kitchen counter peeling potatoes...? Sitting knitting by the window so you can catch the last of the winter light...? Me, too! Wooden floors can be very cold when the temperatures dip.
So that's where my new Tromso Rug pattern comes in.
You can see the two sides of the rug in the photos above. The photo at the top of the page shows the Right Side while the one above shows the Wrong Side. They both have their own individual character and you don’t actually need to decide which side you're going to use until the very end. Even then, if you're careful about finishing off the ends invisibly you can always turn it over later on.
The Tromso Rug has been worked in a 100% wool which gives a lovely warm finish, and the yarn is also super-thick so it works up quickly. There are three different sizes included in the pattern:
- Small: 50 x 75 cm / 20 x 30 ins.
- Medium (pictured above): 60 x 90 cm / 24 x 36 ins.
- and Large: 70 x 105 cm / 28 x 42 ins.
This makes it a very versatile pattern as you should be able to find just the right size to keep you cozy through the winter.
