Supplies That You Need To Crochet Rug

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 this crochet rug. Personally, I like my rug to be denser (lesser holes) with more double crochet stitches, so I chose this doily pattern.

The crochet hook for this giant doily rug is size 10mm (N hook). It comes in a set of 4 by Susan Bates Multi-Pack-Contains Sizes L,M,N,P.

The “yarn” for this crochet rug is actually a cotton clothesline rope that you can get from a hardware shop. I used Ace braided cotton clothesline rope, but you can replace them with multiple strands of bulky weight yarn to make up the size. Since the rope 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!

Is It Difficult To Crochet Rug?

This crochet rug pattern is a beginner-friendly pattern, and beginners shouldn’t have a problem completing it. If you have just started your crochet journey, you may want to learn more about our beginner crochet guide.

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 strength since the rope is fat and rigid compared to yarn.

Well… I do have one problem, it is heavy and warm when I put it on my lap while working toward the end of the rug. I tried to put it on the floor, but bending down and crocheting 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 a fiber core in it.

HOW TO CROCHET RUG

  1. The cotton braided rope and the 10mm crochet hook.
    The pattern calls for 7 hanks of the rope, you will need to join the rope to become a continuous length. crochet doily rug 1
  2. Push the braided cotton jacket backward to expose the fiber core and sleeve in it at both ends that are joining.
    Cut 1/2" away at both ends. crochet doily rug 2
  3. Overlap both ends about 1/2", wrap one of the sleeves around. join rope
  4. Stitch and wrap the thread around, pull it tight and repeat the stitch and wrap until the joint is secured. crochet doily rug 4
  5. Straighten the braided cotton jacket by pushing it forward, stitch and wrap the thread tightly to the core. crochet doily rug 5
  6. Push another jacket end forward and repeat the same sewing. It might be difficult to push the jacket forward, but if you wrap the thread tight enough, it will make the join less bulky and thus easier for you to push the jacket over. crochet doily rug 6
  7. Crochet as usual. The joint may appear harder and bulkier, so avoid it at those curves and loops.
    Block it by damping the rug, then sit on some dry towels on the floor. Walk on it and press it down, leave it there until it is dry. You may replace the damp towers after this with the dry ones if your floor can’t take dampness. Don’t try to soak the rug in water, it will be very heavy for you to leave it up, provided you have some strong arms around to help up.
    Spray a coat of Scotchgard after the rug is dry to protect it from dirt and stains if possible. crochet doily rug 7

    Notes

    For the hook size, you may use up to 12 mm hook for looser tension, which may require more yarns or ropes to crochet.

    Initially, your doily will be a little wavy but not too extensive. It will be flattened once it is wet-blocked. If it turns very wavy, loosen your magic ring a little to make a bigger hole at the center.
