Here's the newest of my hand crocheted cotton fabric rag rugs.   Measurement: 28" diameter.

I just love these types of rugs. I really like the colors in yours.

Are these hard to do? What size crochet hook do you use?

I love this.  Smiley  Ive been wanting to make one for the kitchen but, Ive got so many things I need to make before I start on this project.  Did ya use a pattern or just wing it?

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Lovely!  My nanna used to make these, and I've a real soft spot for them.  This one's very sweet.

I'd be interested to know what size hook you used, and how thick you made your fabric strips?  I've tried these and had it end in disaster - I think it's coz I'm too rough and lazy, and make my strips too wide. Smiley

Wow, its beautiful! I don't have the patience to make a rug, and even if I did I think I'd spaz over people walking over it...
