Concentric Squares 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:

7 balls Apple White: Colour #306
2 balls White: Colour #301
4 balls Pink: Colour #305

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

50 White squares

10 blue squares

and 8 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.
