Crochet Rugs


                                                                         Crochet Rug

A readers recently asked me if I know of anybody who has a pattern for a woolen crochet rug. The only ones I could find were handwritten, and I couldn't see myself typing it out. Because looking at it, I knew I could easily get lost and mess up the whole thing. So if anybody has a digital copy, they'd like to share with me to post here, I'd be delighted.

Many times Hutterites make these rugs by unraveling sweaters, occasionally they're also made from new wool.

In the mean time, I did a Goggle search and found Free Vintage Crochet. This site has a variety of rugs; crochet, woven, hooked and more. If you're creative and love to make rugs, you could easily have a rug making field day with all those gorgeous rug patterns. My favourite is the red and grey Oval Classic.

If you have a rug story to share, I'd love to hear it. Or maybe you have a unique way of creating rugs. I'd love to learn how to make the bath mats made from towels. If somebody has pictures they'd be willing to share, I'd love to post some. I've seen some really gorgeous ones.

Now I just need to learn to crochet. I had to hem a pair of dress pants for my son so they were a bit trickier than regular pants. I went online and watched a YouTube video and it was a piece of cake. I wonder if there are any videos that show how to make these rugs? They're so cute!

Linda, if you are on facebook, there is a group called Hutter arts and crafts, if you can't find it, ask around some of your friends are bound to be on it, get them to add you, there were some beautiful crocheted rugs on there, not sure about the patterns tho, also there were the most amazing towel rugs, and I am sure if you ask they would be willing to share the patterns.
