Craft: Crocheted Rag Rugs

These are rag rugs that I make and sell. They are around my house on all of the floors. We enjoy using them!

Were they crocheted from strips of rags or were they made from skeins of rug yarn?

These rugs look just like the ones my grandma used to make! Glad to see that the tradition is continuing.

These are lovely. I use the almost-identical pattern with #10 crochet thread (not yarn!) for dishcloths. I have made many--sold some, gave away some. They are great for mild scrubbing and look so pretty in the kitchen; the color combinations are nearly infinite! CayC

How very beautiful these are. You have a wonderful talent with these. Would love to learn how to do this and make some for my grandchildren and daughters.

To me, the rugs that Suzie has shown look as if they are made from regular yarn and not rug yarn or of material. I would just make sure you have some of the non slip material Underneath so they do not slip around as I know they do move from experience.

Someone taught my mom years ago to do this and we had a good amount of them around then. Not any more but it'd be nice to try to make some. Here are some links:
