Blown up your doily and move it from table to floor!!!! Giant doily rug or floor mat is one of the most wanted crochet rugs in the recent years since it was created and made well-known by Ladies & Gentleman. Look at it, doesn’t its sublimity spice up the floor and the home decor? This giant doily rug is for my sister’s new house, I am going to make another one for mine when I am moving in… hopefully end of this year.

The pattern I used is a modified 8-Point Poinsettia Doily from a Japanese crochet book, but basically you can use your favorite doily pattern to make it. Personally, I like my rug to be denser (lesser holes) with more double crochet stitches, so I chose this doily pattern. The crochet hook to do this giant doily rug is size 10mm (N hook), it come in a set of 4 by Susan Bates Multi-Pack-Contains Sizes L,M,N,P. The joining up of this Ace braided cotton clothesline rope took part of the time since it comes in 200 feet each and I used 7 of them to make this. If you can get a long roll of continuous of similar rope that is able to crochet, by all means, use it!

The total working hour to complete this doily rug is approximately 16 hours. It is easy and fast to make but might need some arms, wrists and fingers strengths since the rope is fat and rigid compare to yarn. Well… I do have one problem, it is heavy and warm when I put it on my laps while working towards the end of the rug. I tried to put it on the floor, but bending down and crochet isn’t comfortable at all. Perhaps a chair in front of you would be a good idea to put the rug on while you crochet.

Let’s jump to the crochet pattern after this and watch me how to join the braided cotton clothesline rope that has fiber core in it.

  1. Hi! I love the crocheted rug you made and would love to make one. Is there a way I can get a printable pattern for it? Thank you!!

  2. Hi! Is there a printable version of the pattern?

  3. My hands are old and I wonder if you would make this rug for me?
    What would it cost for one about 60 inches round ?

  4. How much dose the cost end up being for the project?

  5. I really love this rope rug:) I wanna make one as well, but i got a bit confused about the size. Could you please tell me how much rope have you used in meter? Many Thanks in advance:)

  6. I see, so for a 6 ft. doily made out of the same rope as shown,
    what is your estimate cost? and how can I order one from you? Thanks
    for your reply.

  7. Great job done nice one again

  8. Hello! How are you? I’m in the process of making this beautiful rug and I’m on round 5 but I realized I have the right size rope but it doesn’t seem to be Solid Braid cotton, there is a material in the center of the rope that is surrounded by some cotton, almost like very thin strand of plastic. Should I stop adding on to this and start all over with the slid braid cotton rope? Will there be a difference on how it starts to wear? Thank you so much in advance!

    • Braided cotton is more resistant to wear, if it is not braided then your rug could wear faster but it is all depending where place the rug too. High traffic area tends to wear faster. So far, this rug still looking good at my sister’s house. The one I knitted also still looks new though it is a little soil as I placed it at the entrance of my house.

  9. I’m on round 10 which says

    R10 : *ch3, sk dc, 1dc in each of next four dc, ch3, slst in 3rd ch of ch5, “1dc in next ch5 sp, ch1″, repeat” 8 times, 1dc in same space, slst in 3rd ch of ch5*, repeat* 8 times, slst in each of next three ch.

    1st off when i ch 3, i have a 5 sp from the last round..so i skip the whole 5 sp, then skip the 1st and last dc from the 6 dc’s that are there putting 4 dc’s between them, sl st in the 3rd chain, and (this is the most confusing part) 1 dc in the ch 5 space. which makes it so scrunched up when im done with this round.

    Hopefully you understand how I explained that. I’ll wait until you reply to continue because after this round I have no idea how you get 17 dc’s in row 11.

    (btw if i look closely at your pictures it looks like you have 9 dc in the ch 5 space?)

  10. Thank you so much for your quick answer!! I stopped making the rug, I’m going to look for the braided cotton. Thanks again!!!

  11. Where did you buy the cotton rope?

  12. I too have the same question about about round 10 as Cheryl (see comment #59). Please respond as I’m really stumped!! Thank you.

  13. Just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for sharing your craft/sewing ideas and tutorials. When you make things for a home or for gifts its appreciated more than just buying something.

  14. Your rope looks gray. Is that the lighting, or does the clothesline you linked to actually look gray rather than white? I love the gray, but all I’m finding is white.
