Love this style rug!
|Start of my doily rug! This rug works up really fast!|
I used this Pattern with some minor changes to make it a full 36 inches in diameter (see below) and found the Cotton rope here, although after doing some more looking I found it for much cheaper on ebay.
The rope is called Cotton welt cord.
The hook size is S
I am going to get some dye and most likely die this dark brown, I have young children and cannot see whit lasting very long! I found this original tutorial on The Craftytortoise blog and wanted to share my changes.
After the last row on the pattern followed I sc 1, Dc 4 on ch 3 sp, *sc next 2 sp, dc 4 on ch 3 sc* repeat ** all the way around, end with 1 sc next to first sc at the start, ss to end and fasten off.
To weave in the end tail I used the hook to pull the tail under and through about 8 stitches, then wrapped it around the back of 1 st and pulled it back through the same 8 stitches again, just wanted to be sure it was not going to come loose.
I am selling the finished product on my ETSY
I hope this was of some help
