I am about to make this rug (I will need to go DOWN a few sizes in my hook choice to make the rug fit where I want to put it).... but what is a size 7 crochet hook? There is NO U.S. equivalent to a size 7 (the size goes from a 6.5, which is a K to 8.0, which is is an L hook)....?

Hi there - Thanks so much for point this out. You actually need a 5 mm (U.S. H/8) crochet hook. I have corrected the pattern to reflect this. Thanks again! - Julia from FaveCrafts

I am in the process of making this rug (bought the kit at yarnspirations.com) and for the life of me cannot get it to look like the picture. I would not rate this as easy, but intermediate and found the pattern confusing. My thought right now is to scrap the rug and use the yarn for something else!

Hi, is there any possibility to make this type of flower rug at home, if yes please help me, i always wanted do make one of these rug http://www.rugsandblinds.com/rug/floral-rugs-dhajam-brown-and-yellow-10226

I do not understand what Yoh is done. It ways Yoh & draw through 2 loops on hook 3 times, Yet there should be a loop left on hook, I can't understand how this is done.

you asked what YOH is - yarn over hook you should have a loop left on your hook like normal, right... are you putting the hook into your chain first, then yoh ? THESE ARE RIGHT FROM BERNAT.COM - Crochet Abbreviations alt alternate(ing) pat pattern approx approximately rem remain(ing) beg beginning rep repeat ch chain reverse sc reverse single crochet cm centimeter(s) rnd(s) round(s) cont continue(ity) RS right side dc double crochet sc single crochet dcbp Yoh and draw up a loop around post of next st at back of work inserting hook from right to left.

I found a video that a handyman used 100% silicone adhesive...put thick beading around the perimeter edges and zig zagged through the middle and then used a spatula to smooth it out. He let it cure overnight and it left it just tacky enough that it didn't slip anymore.

Would, Two sided carpet tape be the answer? I sed the two sided tape and stabelized the Rug. May have repeat the technic,if the Rug has gone thrue the washing machine. Hope it work's for you to?

Hello, i made one for my bathroom too but i was wondering how to attach it to a non-slipping rug,, Do you sew it on or glue it, Please give me an idea, thank you.

any chances of getting a knitted version of this one?

It is pretty, but shouldn't you put a no-slipping backing on this rug?

yes

Where is the diagram of the colour layout?
