Wow, this is the largest rug i've made so far. I just kept on going and ended up finishing it at 5 feet 10 inches across. I crocheted this one in stripes. I love the way it turned out. I also added a slip stitch around the border as i think it makes it just a bit more sturdy and gives it a more complete look. Now available in my shop Debbie Crochets with free U.S. shipping.
