Measured progress


Twined rugs are worked from each end to an area near the middle of the frame.

This rug has progressed fairly quickly and, in this photo, is nearing completion. As the open area gets smaller, it takes longer and longer to maneuver the fabric strips through the warp strips.

  1. I love these types of rugs. They remind me of when I was younger.You've done a great job. Is there somewhere I can get the pattern? it would be interested to make one.

  2. You are certainly a multi-talented woman! Thanks for explaining the technique; I had no idea that rugs were worked from outside edges to the middle.

  3. I have never seen one of these in person and not real sure how you are making it but I think that getting the strips ready would be enough for me:)

  5. Do you just use your fingers, or would a big crochet hook help? The rug is looking great! It looks like it would be very sturdy!

  9. I would think those last few rows of weaving would be tricky...and would take strong fingers and plenty of patience!!

    Looking good, Nancy!!
