Martha Lazar was inspired by Early American braided rag rugs when she designed these colorful home accessories. She says, "Colonists repurposed their rags into these functional works of art. I kept thinking about how I could incorporate knitting and figured that I could substitute I-cord for the strips of cloth used in traditional rugs. The sheer amount of I-cord I would need to make always intimidated me, but I couldn't stop thinking about this idea."Finished Size: 7-8" diameter.

Originally Published: Interweave Knits, Summer 2015. It was the discovery of an I-cord machine that finally brought Martha's vision to fruition. With an I-cord tool, you can produce yards of knitted cord in a short amount of time. By combining an I-cord machine and multicolored sock yarns, Martha worked up a delightful throw rug and potholders. You can find the pattern for the Sock Yarn Braided Trivets on page 90, and you can make a rug by just making a bigger potholder! Find a tutorial for making these fun braided items on page 84, plus more information about the Embellish Knit! I-cord machine.
