Granny Square Rag Rug Pattern


I recently came up with the idea or notion of producing a granny square rag rug it’s something I haven’t seen anywhere else and naturally wondered why. I wasn’t sure it would work due to the nature of rag rugs but I’ve done it and I love it.

It’s shabby, it’s chic, it’s vintage, it’s retro, it’s folksy, it’s granny and it’s crochet. What more could we want?


So if you fancy having a go at making one you can get the pattern on Etsy or Ravelry.

As many of you will be aware it’s International Crochet Day on Sunday, so I was wondering what everyone was doing to celebrate or promote crochet.


I will no doubt be eating, sleeping and breathing crochet. I will be blogging, pattern writing, and even crocheting. Why not pop along to the International Freeform Crochet group and have a look at this years exhibition.
