The link for this old fashioned oval rug does not work for me. Can anyone provide a different link?

I agree with another poster. The price of rugs in the stores is crazy. I can make my own for one third of their prices. And this pattern is one of my favorites. I too was raised with this type of rugs in the house. Just put some puff paint on the back and it won't slide.

I have been finding a lot of "vintage" patterns here lately and I am not sure which of them I like the most. This oval rug brought back a few memories. My mom had these in our home when we were kids and I didn't think much about it. You can not find one of these in the stores now if you really looked for it. Company will be asking "Where did you get it!"

I have been trying to make a oval rug for my living room for awhile now and it just won't lay flat. Now that I have a pattern I see why, I need to add more stitches in the round to make it lay flat! Thank you so much for this Old Fashioned Oval Rug pattern that is so well written and easy to follow. Now I can start over and have a rug that will work out.. I'm a happy crocheter. I love the fringe that makes this look so sweet. We will have warmer feet this year with this pattern. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I have been looking for rug patterns since it is getting colder. The prices in the stores for rugs are ridiculous and you can make your own in no time. They will wash up better as well. The like the contrast of colors in the rug and the fringe on the side. Thank you for the pattern.

I haven't seen a pattern for a household rug in quite awhile! I actually think this one without the fringe looks rather modern with its dashes. I've always been partial to an oval shape too! Oh, I just noticed that it's labeled "intermediate" level and I don't think I'm there yet. Either I'll find me a coach and/or I'll put this on my "further down the road" list. Thanks for the pattern!

I happen to love the vintage gray and white yarn combo WITH the fringe! Ya gotta have the fringe! I would not be vacuuming this- just shake it outside every once in a while and then wash when needed in a garment bag on gentle cycle. You'd have to re-block it again, though, I am sure. This would be equally vintage-y in a minty turquoise and white, or a yellow and gray. Fun!

I like the fringe looking it reminds me of granny's house many years ago.However it is optional. BUt without them would look not the same as well.I will use other colors as well maybe brown and beige.Has any one tried other colors?

I was thinking about making a rug like this for my RV. It looks like its thick enough to withstand a kid and just about anything else I could throw at it. I will definitely be making it without the fringe (not Vacuum friendly) and some color to really make it pop. The design reminds me of a rug that my grandma had made for her kitchen many years ago.

I give this Old Fashioned Oval Rug a 4-star rating because I don't like fringes in the rug because it can be the cause of minor accidents. Something could get caught or tangled in between the fringes that could cause someone to get hurt. Nonetheless, this rug is useful in the house. It has aesthetic value that can add beauty to the house or it can be used to dust off dirt from footwear coming from outside the house. You may use your colors of choice in this rug project. I'd prefer something not vintage-looking.
