  • Wow! Christina, your color variation is Amazing!

    • Thanks Diane! I jumped on that Pantone Grellow Color of 2021 bandwagon!

  • Love the new color kit! Loved making this rug!

    I have made three, so far. I made the original for the kit-a-long. My husband liked it so much he order two more as Christmas gifts for out grandniece and grandnephew. When I took them to the laundromat for top loader felting, a fellow visitor was knitting socks. She fell in love with the Kiki Marikos. As did one of the other visitors. The Kiki Mariko turned a laundromat visit into a social event. It has that effect.

    P.S. Make sure there are top loaders at the laundromat. This one ended up not having any. I dryer felted at home instead. [Easy Felt Like a Pirate instructions online.] Still, not a wasted visit.

    P.P.S. There is still time to do one as a holiday gift. It took me just over a week at about two hours a day. And I am not a speedy knitter.

    P.P.P.S. In-person delivery would be recommended. These rugs are not lightweight and shipping could be expensive.

  • Have been wanting to knit this rug for years. An index card is sticking out of my MDK- Outside the Lines book, that I bought new, and it opens to the Kiko Mariko Rug pattern. Guess it was meant to be, as I ordered the kit on Saturday. I never order kits, as I am a freethinking patterner, adjusting, changing colors, customizing. I ordered the original color scheme, still warm in my mind. The rug looks like it will brighten any place where it lives.

  • Hello,
    What is the approximate size of the finished (felted) rug?
    Thank you.

    • It’s approximately 26″ x 40″ after felting. Precise dimensions will depend on felting, of course.

      • Thank you!

  • I picked up the standard Kiki kit last year & it’s been in my queue since then because I have a very long queue! My kit is going to have to jump the queue & I’m going to have to strongly consider this yellow combo because I love the way it looks so much!

    • Any chance you could offer just the grellow chart as a standalone purchase for those of us that already have the pattern but would like to try other colorways?

  • I bought the Grellow kit and I’m just about to get started. I’m confused about the steek stitches. The instructions say “each edge stitch should be the same color as the pattern stitch that follows or precedes it.” I don’t understand. I downloaded a “steek pattern” graphic from the original color way and that’s not helping either. Can someone help? Maybe a photo of your steek section?
