Bedside loopy rugs

Once upon a time I bought a book on Tea Cozies. The first one I knitted was Chenille Chic.

I liked its loopy structure that reminded me of a rug. So I decided to knit a couple of bedside rugs for the bedroom. However, very soon I realized that this kind of loop making in rayon chenille yarn will kill my wrists. Another solution was needed. Weaving was my next choice.

I was so happy to begin but... after a couple of picks I noticed that I would not be able to finish as my Rigid Heddle was too harsh on the yarn and it started to shred to threads almost immediately.

Bad luck again.

The only way left was crochet. And it turned out to be the right way. The result almost the same as knitted loops but the method is easier on the hands.
