    I have always wanted to try to make a rug....any suggestions on good books for learning or tutorials? Love the purples you used.

    My mother taught me to crochet rugs. It was really easy. Just single crochet stitch in a circle or oval. Increasing as needed to keep the shape. I've never done the braided ones.

    I have enjoyed making cotton or jersey crocheted rugs for years. I have used a variety of fabrics. Lately I had a box of selveges and thought I might try them as a cotton rug and was very pleased with outcome.

    Very nice rug and I love the color. I love doing locker hooking. I've only made 2 rugs so far using that method.
