Rugmakers Bulletin #14: STRING CROCHET RUGS
by Master Rugmaker, Diana Blake Gray

String Crochet (or "Baling Twine") rugs are a delightfully simple way to get a rug that looks like it was woven on a loom, but you make them with a crochet hook instead. The bulletin covers the techniques for making long runners and for making oval rugs in various fabrics for either light or heavy rugs.

If you like to crochet with yarns or thread, finally you can make practical durable and unique rug. Use just about any fabric from light cottons to recycled blankets for thin runners or thick rugs. Choose a durable thread or yarn. (The baroque cotton that we carry works well with cotton fabrics for this type of rug.)

The Rugmaker’s Bulletins were written by Master Rugmaker Diana Blake Gray bowing to popular demand for the basic directions for some of the unique rug making methods. Each is pamphlet size (8.5 by 5.5 inches) and has 8 to 10 pages of directions. In many cases these bulletins are the only printed directions ever published for the technique. And while we know that folks buy these and then sell them on eBay for twice the price (or more) we are not raising the prices.

If you would like to learn more about these techniques, you are cordially invited to take the Rag Rugs Tour on the Rugmakers Homestead Website at www.rugmakershomestead.com
