I often knit in DK weigh yarn on needles 3,5 to 4mm (US 4 -6), and I watch the work grow slowly. I love the definition that can achieved with this tension and colour work. But sometimes it is fun to change yarn and needles and speed up a bit.
The other day I did just that. I have had some Alafoss Lopi in my yarn cupboard for ages, and it takes up space. So in lack of a project for the yarn I got it out together with a pair of needles size 12mm (US 17)! I needed a bedside rug for the wooden floor in the bedroom, so it was pretty straight forward!
It’s a no-brainer to knit the rug, but if you need a no-brainer the pattern can be downloaded for free here!
