What advice would you give someone starting this project? For your tarn, use fabric from t-shirts that are as similar as possible in content and thickness. Also, if you don't plan to machine-dry this rug, you'll need to crochet it a bit differently. See the "Drip-Dry Tarnation Rug" post linked from the pattern page.

When I was a child, many years ago, a neighbor of my Grandmothers taught me to crochet rugs with plastic dry cleaning bags and bread wrappers. They wore well and you could wash them under the faucet.

I actually made a variation of this rug with plarn (cut-up grocery bags). It's on my blog, here:

I have tried using softer plastic like bread bags, etc, and it's a lot harder to work with. It makes my hands and arms tired quickly, while the grocery bag plarn slides through the loops a lot easier.
