I taught myself to crochet almost a year ago by watching YouTube videos. The reason I wanted to learn was I wanted to learn how to make rag rugs like my grandmother made. I can't read patterns and have no idea what stitches I make are called, I just crochet. I made about 18 rugs and gave some away, sold some and use several. After seeing some pictures on some blogs of rag baskets I liked them and decide to make some. As you can see below I have made 11 so far and am almost done with number 12. I am almost out of rags that are ready to be crocheted so will need to get out the stuff I have washed and start cutting some more. I have several loads of old linens to wash to use and will wash some tomorrow so I can hang them out to dry.
