Rugs like this are very nice but also very slippery! Be careful especially if you have small kids running around.

Want to save pattern. No save button! Where did it go?!?

Hi there, The save button is below the project, in between the print button and the comment button. It is located above the Ratings & Comments section. You should be able to see it if you are logged in. Thanks!

my grandmother made rugs and hot pads in this style when I was a child. My grandfather worked at a company that made the knitted cording that was used around electric cords. He took the odds and ends of cording home to my grandmother. I call them life time rugs and hot pads. My grandmother died in the 1980. I still use them.

I am having trouble with round 2. The part that says sc in front loop of first 2 sc, I understand this part. It is this next sc that I am not sure where I am suppose to (ch 3, slip st) in top of last sc made. And is it forming some sort of loop? When I read the next round it sounds like they are all just sc and no mention of the ch 3, slip st's.

It seems that you are making a picot of sorts.

If you right click your mouse and do a print preview you can change font size there. Will use more paper, but, you can read it. I have old eyes to.

This looks easy to make & my daughter needs a couple of this mates. Thanks for the pattern.

Just a note: When I printed this, the font was so small I couldn't read it. Looks like a about 6 or at best 8 font size. Please increase the Font Size for us oldies. The Rug and instructions are great. Thank You

@glenso1 Thanks for the comment! If the pattern is too hard to read, you could also copy all the text and paste it into a word document, then increase the size so it's easier to read.

Hi WebbyDeber, A and B are designated to each different color of yarn. If you look in the materials needed for the pattern, the first yarn is noted as 'A' and the second is noted as 'B'. Patterns use letters as abbreviations for different colors. I hope this helps!

Hi, If you use two stands of yarn held together what is meant by the "with A" & "with B" mean?

With 2 strands of the same color, you complete a given round. The next round is done with 2 strands of the other color. This is easiest to do if you work with 2 skeins of the given color (see Materials) at once, rather than trying to work with both ends of the same skein.
