Are you ready for a little yarn-fueled fun? The Colorplay Rug (free for the downloading in the Blue Sky Alpacas Pattern Store) lets you custom create a colorful, made-just-the-way-you-like it rug.
Sound good? Great–let’s get started.
Colorplay Rug – Crochet
Would you prefer to knit or crochet? You can choose from Sarah Smuland’s knit version or crochet option by Jillian Cautrell. Or make them both. You decide.
Colorplay Rug – Knit
Now it’s time to pick your palette. We used Brown Bear #1006, Silver Mink #1002, and Pluto #1214 for the knit version; Gray Wolf #1007, Coyote #1223, and Cayenne #1216 for the crochet. Not your cup of tea? No worries. There are 24 Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky
colors to choose from, (four are brand new).
Coyote, Sunglo, Shine, and Marine
