Thanks so much for putting these instructions online. I injured my foot last week and am off work for at least two weeks. I was wondering how the rugs were made and now I know….thanks to you!

Your videos are awesome…..I might even try to teach this to my students when I get back to work!

I’ll try to send you a picture of my finished rug and I plan on sending your link to my friends.

Hi! Thank you so much for your instructions! I have been searching everywhere and yours are the clearest on the web! I just have one question…but starts to curl t the edges and it becomes more a hat. How do you keep it down? I feel like I don’t have as many loops to go through once it gets bigger. Are we suppose to add loops/knots? Thanks again!

I am by no means an expert, but a friend and I tried our hand at these rugs, using these vidoes. My friend made a 'bowl' and i made a 'rug'....lol. We figured out that hers went bowl-style because she tied the knots and kind of pulled them up and onto the top of the rug, while i pulled my knots to the side of the rug. Does that make sense?

sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Got a bowl shaped rug? I

Got a bowl shaped rug?
I haven't tried making one of these rugs yet - I plan to ASAP! But I crochet. If I want to crochet a flat round shape this is how I would convert the instructions (I think) for this rug.

ROUND RUG.
I would start with 3 or 4 stitches or knots, then when I switched directions I would put TWO knots in each hole until I had gone all the way around to my starting place (filling 6 or 8 holes, and making 12 or 16 knots).
On the next round I would put TWO knots in EVERY OTHER hole so you would make about 18 or 24 total knots for that round. The 3rd round you would put TWO knots every third hole, the 4th round two knots every fourth hole, etc.

OVAL RUG.
To make it OVAL, you would calculate the number of starting knots by subtracting [how long you want your rug] by [how wide you want your rug].
If you want your rug to be 24" x 36" you would make you starting row of knots (36-24=12) 12" long.

Then you would do TWO knots in one hole (called an increase) only on the ENDS OF THE RUG and not on the long sides of it.

I've never done an oval in crochet so I don't know the math for it, but it should be very similar:
increase every other knot in the 2nd time around, increase every 3rd knot in the third time around, etc. except ONLY on the curved ends of the oval, not the along the straight sides.

As I said, I haven't tried to make a toothbrush rug yet, so there may be some dynamic I don't know about, but this is the technique used to make circles in crocheting and I would think it would work here also.

As I said before, I LOVE these videos - they are so well done!

Hi, To combat the "hat"

Hi,
To combat the "hat" shape, you need to add two stiches in a hole every few holes. I make a lot of oval rag rugs and just add a few extra stitches at the rounded parts on each end.

Also, if the rug is just slightly curling, you can get it to flatten by soaking it with water, putting it between two towels and weighting it down to flatten. The problem will be that you will have to do this each time you wash the rug.

I love your videos. Thank you. Have started my first rug. I’m trying to make an oval rug. It started out as an oval but as I’ve continued it has gotten more round than oval.

Also the stitches are getting longer. Can you please explain about the “doubles”? What exactly are they and when to use them? Do they keep the 2 problems I mentioned from happening (i.e. longer stitches & oval becoming rounded)?

Thank you for any help you can provide!
