Giant Doily Rug

By: Diy maven Sep 14, 2010

Handmade Mega Doily Rug

This rug by Ladies and Gentlemen isn't exactly like my grandmother's crochet, although I'm guessing she would have been delighted by it. Made of cotton rope, the rug, available through the designers' Etsy shop ($600), measures 3" in diameter, but larger sizes are possible. Now for the 'inspiration' part of the post....as an experienced crocheter, I'm thinking this project is entirely diy-able. We know what kind of yarn to use (cotton rope) and as for the hook size, I'd use my hand(s). And as for the pattern, well, any old doily pattern would do. You might want to start your search for the perfect pattern here.

I love your feet. Please, show us tour soles!!!

How much rope would it need? 

I think the edge is Treble cr then maybe sc around. Then sc and ch 3 or 4 then sc counting 3 or 4 stitches before the next sc.

I really would like to find this pattern for this rug but can't seem too....I've seen some come close but the finished edge is diff....  Anyone know where the actual pattern is?

What size of piping/cotton rope would you use?

Looks like the "hand" crocheted rug from Crafting a Meaningful Home.. http://mateoilasco.com/books/cmh.html Super cool project, you use your hands as the hook!

I love it. Reminds me a bit of "Grammy Rugs" my Grammy B used to make from cut strips of double knit fabric. I tried making one and it isn't easy at all to work with. I don't know how she had the strength to do it. She would have loved this idea.

I always wish I could be the first person to come up with something so unique and interesting. I have had it in my mind to make some type of crochet applique wall-art using something of a thicker guage than yarn but that's probably been done already too!
