Love your rugs!  Would you share some stats?  Strip width, hook size, finished rug size?  Do you know how much yardage it took?  Thanks for sharing.

The strips are about one inch wide.  I don't exactly measure, just guess at them.  They are ripped, not cut.  The ripping insures that they are the same width along the length.

As for the hook size, I don't really know.  I made my own hook from a 1/2 inch dowel.

And it probably takes about five yards of material for a rug this size, which is two feet by three feet.

I have some other rugs posted on here and there may be more information in those posts.
