Rug Making LinksI love the i­dea of mak­ing my own rugs. I hav­en’t done it yet, but I am de­ter­mined to ev­ent­u­ally. In the meanw­hile, I keep col­lect­ing ar­t­ic­les and pat­terns for rugmaking.

CROCHETED RUGS

I love crocheted rugs. Try them with rug yarn, t-shirts torn into continuous strips, and long strips of bedsheets.

KNIT RUGS

In case your not a crocheter, here are a couple of knit rugs to try out.

BRAIDED RUGS

I haven’t collected a lot of information on braided rugs from the internet because I own books on the subject. The books are The Illustrated Guide to Rug Braiding by Vera Cox and The Braided Rug Book by Norma Sturges.

RUGS FROM RUGS

All the rugs in this section are created from remnants, samples, doormats or inexpensive sisal.

CANVAS FLOORCLOTHS
