Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

That is a unique pattern for sure. And I wonder how they came up with that name? In reviewing the pattern specifics it would seem fairly easy to complete. I think once you figure out/memorize how to work up the pattern you could do it by sight as you go and not have to keep referring to the pattern. I think you could also sew a rug pad or canvas on the backside.

The pattern is on the upper part of the page in full. It's called Bubble and Bulge Rug.

Well that's sad. It's been at least 4 months and there is still no pattern. I really like the look of this rug, very disappointed

Love making these rugs. I made 4 of them in different colors. They are great for putting in my dogs bed as a blanket as well for these cold nights.

There is no pattern.

The pattern is not there...
