This DVD does not include instructions or patterns for rugs, but if you’re interested in learning to crochet with the goal of making rugs, it does a great job of teaching the basics of crochet.
Created in 2006 by Leisure Arts, Inc., Catherine Miller Scott, a professional crochet designer, gives step by step instructions for creating six different projects. Close-up views for making stitches and pauses allow you to work on the projects along with the DVD. A paper copy of each pattern is included.

Each pattern includes instructions for using two different yarns, so you can create different looks with the same pattern.
