I just made my first crochet rag rug out of thrift store sheets. I made it in a circle after chaining 5 and then joining in the round and going around increasing where necessary. I wasn't as happy with the outcome of my rug as I thought I'd be. There seemed to be a lot of "holes" in it and I hoped it would have had a more closed appearance. It is ok just not what I hoped it would be. Wonder if it would matter if I tried crocheting tighter stitches?

I believe there is an error in this pattern. Did you mean cutting the fabric into 3" widths instead of 3" lengths?
