Does anyone know how to make a rug like this? Or the name of the technique so I can google it? Smiley Thanks!

It looks like your example might have just been done in stripes left to right. And threaded into a mesh fabric as the knots were created.

NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.

That's what I thought at first, but then I found this close up photo and now I'm thinking maybe it's done on a loom because you can see the weft threads in various colors.

Hmm. I'm still seeing knots, but perhaps it is knotted in between the weft threads? But the "bumps" are not alternating like they would with traditional weaving. You know...over, under...next row under, over. Perhaps they are knotted around each weft? That would keep them in even rows.

I found this collection of pinterest tutorials that you may find interesting:

It seems there are lots of ways to make rag rugs. I have one I started years ago made out of denim jeans. It sits on my round barstool at the moment. More like a chair cover size. That is as far as I got with it  Grin Denim is tough to crochet! And cutting the strips is rough on the hands, too. I may finish it out one day. For now, it keeps the cats from sliding off the chair.  Cheesy

Warning: the tutorial site goes on FOREVER. Plan to spend days in there  Wink

Is it locker hooking? I've done locker hooking with roving, looks similar, but you can do it with strips of fabric. It's a moderately fast technique.
