Inspired by a rag-rug pattern, I tore up a flat full-sized sheet into one long strip that was 1- 1/2" wide. It was a bit of work tearing that up! I was going to crochet it into a seat cushion for my rocking chair, but thought better of it - I think it might be rather uncomfortable to sit on this surface. So it has wound up being turned into some sort of container/basket. We'll see how large it winds up. I love this crochet hook - it is massive! I don't even know what size it is, lol.
