In the afterglow of my two recent and successful bathmats, I caught Absorba fever. I cast on immediately for a wool doormat. Wool is not as absorbent as cotton (but repels dirt). I thought it would be fun to do stripes instead of a log cabin. So, this rug is Not So Absorba.
I had a bit of a brain fart and forgot to multiply gauge and desired size. I cast on 180 stitches with 2 strands of Fisherman’s Wool on a 5.5 mm needle. I had wanted a doormat and ended up making a runner for the kitchen. Oh, well. It’s cushy and I like it.
8 row/4 ridge stripes, carrying the unused yarn along the edge.
