I did not know how involved it was to crochet a circular rug. This post lead to a couple other patterns using basically the same technique but different types of yarn. I like them all but the one where the designer used the t-shirt yarn was the most attractive one to me. Thanks for sharing.

I really enjoyed reading over the directions for this post, How to Crochet a Round Rug. I actually learned a lot. It is amazing just how little I know when it comes to crochet and I thought I knew a lot. I appreciate the tips on how to make sure the round rug will lie flat.

I love this pattern especially the color and would love to make it for your kitchen. However, I have to very active cats who would be all over the rug and it would not be my kitchen for very long.

I love that. I often times make things off the top of my head, without a pattern. Round things always give me trouble. I get so angry when I end up ruffling it out and likewise for the bowl effect. I like how she explained it in plain English, how to correct for these mistakes. All without actually providing a pattern! This means I can apply these principals to any of my work with a round shape, even if it is not for a rug.

What a gold mine you've left for anyone wanting to crochet a circular rug!!! My feet are old and I grew up going barefoot. My house has ceramic tile and well you can guess the rest...sad. I can indeed tell you're a teacher because you've given us the principles as well as the patterns ) Now I'm hoping my arms are strong enough to try one or I'm going to build up my biceps trying! Last BUT not least the eyes of that little one...pools of the future you could just fall sweet!

love the colors used in this rug, but no matter what colors are used this is a great rug to use to tie everything together. Great style and instructions.
