Our Big Stitch Knit Rug is scrumptious like a heavenly soft cloud and beautiful like a white-pebbled Sardinian beach. Sinking your feet into its cozy stitches is such a wonderful feeling you'll want it first thing in the morning and last thing at night!
With its farm-fresh natural fibers and jumbo sized stitches, the Big Stitch Knit Rug embraces homey rusticity with modern panache. A super easy slip stitch pattern gives it its lofty squishiness and fantastic nubbly texture.
Like its circular cousin, the Big Stitch Crocheted Rug, this knit version is made out of Bag Smith's Big Stitch Alpaca. It seems to say, "Make me into a gorgeous rug!". Seventy percent alpaca reinforced by a touch of wool and nylon, this yarn is ready to withstand rigorous duty with dignity and beauty!
