I wanted the mats to be nice and cushy, so used two strands of yarn held together .  I have taken several to our Humane Society and they were happy to receive them.  I tied the small balls together using the double knot.  I wouldn't use this technique for other things, but for this project it seems okay.


1     I tied the partial skeins together using this tutorial:

    With only a ch 1 turning, you’ll need to pay close attention where the last stitch goes.  Until you get used to it you might like to mark the first stitch.  Using the ch 1 makes a more even edge than if you did a ch 2.         

Worsted weight (4) yarn, about 120 grams worked with two strands held together.
US size L (8.0mm) crochet hook

Size:  Approximately 15 inches square

Gauge: Unimportant

Chain 32 
Row 1: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each remaining ch across.  (30 sts)

Row 2: Ch 1 and turn, sc in each st across.  (30 sts)

Row 3: Ch 1 and turn, dc in each st across.  (30 sts)

Repeat rows 2 and 3, until mat is desired size.  It took 23 rows for mine.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
