It has been more than a week since I officially moved into my new home…. YAY…. finally!!! I knitted this simple garter stitch floor mat / rug with braided cotton clothesline rope some times ago in preparation for the new house, I am glad that I can put it on the floor of my entrance at last. The floor mat gave the room an instant warmth and coziness (see the photo below), I love it!!!
The rope is exactly the same as the one I used to crochet the Giant Doily Rug, but you can substitute it with other similar material like super chunky yarn or T-shirt yarn (Tarn) as long as they are knit-able and crochet-able. Find a suitable needle to knit the project. Size of the floor mat will change according to your tension and yarn or rope diameter, so, take these attributes into account for the variation.
After you have completed the project, block it by wetting the mat, adjust the knit so that the shape resembles it rectangle-ness, let it dry on the floor with dry towel at the bottom. This rope mat is heavy when wash, so be prepared for this too.
You can always change the number of stitches and rows to adapt to your intended mat size.
