3.75 Graph ‘N Latch Rug Canvas made by M.C.G. Textiles in Chino, CA is used to make latch hook, locker hooked and fleece prodded rugs.
Canvas is 50% polyester and 50% cotton and is available is a variety of sizes:
30 inches X 36 inches or 76.5 centimeters X 91.8 centimeters
36 inches X 60 inches or 92 centimeters X 153 centimeters
54 inches X 60 inches or 137.2 centimeters X 153 centimeters
61 inches X 10 yards or 155.55 centimeters X 9.144 meters
Can’t find the size your looking for? Rug canvas is easy to cut to size with scissors and multiple canvases can be joined together to make larger rugs. There are tips and instructions on cutting canvas, glueing joints to prevent unraveling and sewing multiple canvases together in the Latch Hook Instructions found in the Hooking and Prodding Category or at the links below.
Graph ‘N Latch rug canvas has 3.75 holes per inch of canvas. The blue lined grid has 10 holes vertically and 10 holes horizontally making it easier to count, transfer patterns and calculate yarn requirements. Because there are only 3.75 holes per inch, the canvas does not allow for fine details.
M.C.G. recommends that you allow 2”-4” on each side of the canvas to tuck under when your rug is finished. Instructions for hemming and binding latch hook and fleece prodded rugs can be found in the Hooking and Prodding Category or at the links below.
Care Instructions: Rug Canvas should not be washed before starting your rug. Once your rug is complete, depending on the materials used your rug can be dry cleaned or hand washed in cool water with mild detergent. Lay flat to dry. I would not recommend machine washing.

Can’t find Graph ‘N Latch canvas where you live? Look for rug canvas that doesn’t unravel easily and has uniform holes.
