Rainbow Check Rug


Approximately 1.2 metres square


Medium Butterfly Loom (22 x 22cm) You can buy one from The Butterfly Loom at, along with instructions on how to use it.


Panda Magnum 100% acrylic Courtelle in colours:

2 balls Red: Geranium Colour #307
2 balls Orange: Orange Colour #378
2 balls Yellow: Gold Colour #336
2 balls Green: Veridant Colour #320
2 1/2 balls Blue: Saxe Colour #310
2 balls Purple: Regal Colour #337

Note: This pattern has not been tested so these amounts are approximate. To make sure you have enough yarn make squares until you have used up a whole ball of yarn and use this number to work out how many balls you'll need to complete your cushion.


Using the medium size loom, make:
20 blue squares and 16 squares of each of the remaining colours.

Sew them together following the diagram, sewing the edge knots on adjacent squares to each other and leaving the free loops on the front of your work.
