The woven hula hoop rug was such a joy to make. This project makes it easy to catch the weaving bug.  I love that with something as simple as a hula hoop and some t-shirt yarn, you can make a full size floor rug!  Plus, you get to improvise with color and different weaving techniques along the way.

    So pleased for you! I tried your hula hoop weaving and finger knitting with the kids at school and they are both very addictive!!

    • Thanks Louise! I’m so glad you did that project – It’s so much fun, isn’t it??

    so how do I get the pattern to do this?

    • Hi Marisa,
      You can get the pattern in the latest issue of Mollie Makes Magazine. You’ll find it on craft magazine stands (like Barnes & Noble) for another week. After that, you can go to Mollie Makes’ websites and order back issues!
      Have fun!

    (i’me sorry, i am portuguese, sorry for some mistakes)
    i’ve tried to do this, but mine wasn’t so flat, it began to form some waves… i’ve tried to do it all over again, but it haven’t worked anyway.. can you give me a clue?

    • Hi Joana,
      If yours is bunching up, try weaving more loosely. Its counter intuitive, but its bunching because your outer rings are too tight.
