Thereís a pattern that Iíve edited from a picture that Iíve put up for a free pattern on my web site on Google Blogger. For any whoíve seen the giant rug, made out of rope, youíre going to be thrilled that thereís a pattern to follow now. So, why bother to buy it when you can make it? If you havenít seen the picture yet, youíre going to be astounded by the shear beauty of the simplicity.
The first time I saw this picture I was blown away; mostly because I hadnít thought to design something like that before. Iím usually the idea person behind finding a solution to any problem that might involve any type of fiber. Well, all I needed was just the [i]idea[/i] to get me started. I already have several patterns planned to put together for a later time. So, sometime in the future, you may be seeing more patterns on my blog, Etsy, eBay or even through Leisure Arts.
Iíve given much thought to the type of material that might be used other than a rope. Of course, put on tile/linoleum/marble, cotton/nylon/acrylic or most any other fiber would skid right across the floor. So, Iíd suggest using some type of contrast rubber gripper material (such is often used, these days, to line kitchen drawers). This will give the rug something to stick to the tile with.
Iíd like to start sharing some of my patterns with my readers. If youíre not following me on Pinterest, Twitter or my Blogger page @ Beyaís Craft and Hobby, I hope youíll take the opportunity to do so now.

Hereís where you can find the pattern for my GIANT Rug pattern. The hook size just says GIANT, but if you can find a size larger than an S, thatís what you want. I suspect that this pattern was done with a specially made hook for the project.
But, Iíll be working it up as soon as I get caught up with some other things that I need to get done.
In the meantime, please feel free to look around my blog, Pinterest and Twitter pages. If you have any questions, feel free to ask away. And, if thereís anything that youíd like to have designed that you canít find anywhere else, please feel free to contact me. Thereís a good chance that I can either find what youíre looking for, or with some picture passing, maybe I can figure out what youíre trying to get and Iíll be able to design it for you.
