The color possibilities & yarn ideas are endless for this rug. Check out Josefina & Jeffery pattern page on RAVELRY to see finished projects made from this pattern by different crafters and please do not forget to add your project as well. This pattern calls for working with 3 strands of medium weight yarn. You can find some easy tips on working with multiple strands of yarn at once --> HERE.
If you are not comfortable working with 3 strands or you are trying to change finished size, just use any thicker or thinner yarn (1, 2, or 3 strands) with any suitable hook to make this rug bigger or smaller. The finished size & yarn qty will vary depending on the materials used & your tension.
TIP: Make the ears one-of-a-kind by changing colors frequently in any round, it’s a great project for using up your yarn leftovers.
