Frequent question: How much yarn does it take to crochet a rug?

How much yarn do I need to crochet a rug?

How much yarn do I need for my rug?

Most rugs will only use a fraction of a skein. You can whip 594 inches or just under 50 feet using my example of 4.5″ of whipping from a 60″ strip using my favorite whipping yarn, Cascade 220. That is a rug larger than 12′ x 12′.

What weight of yarn is best for rugs?

Basically any yarn that is a worsted weight-bulky will work well for rug hooking, as long as it is not slippery. If you are looking at a label, any yarn that knits 3.5-4 knitted stitches per inch is great. Wool is just plain wonderful, but lots of other fibers hook up well, again, as long as they are not slippery.

How many yards do you need to crochet a rug?

It takes about 10 yards of fabric to make a 24 x 36 inch size rug. 1/3 of this fabric is not even seen so an old sheet or other scrap fabric is great. I found that a full size sheet is about the same as 4 yards of fabric.

What is the difference between rug yarn and regular yarn?

Rug wool yarn has a rougher texture to touch and is a stiffer, sturdier yarn. It is made specifically for use in making rugs. Rugs withstand a lot of wear and tear so the yarn has to be sturdy. Knitting wool yarn is softer than rug wool yarn and more pliable and flexible to use.
