I love braided rugs, of course. For a few years we offered a class on how to do this at the store, and if you were lucky enough to have taken this you know how good a teacher Dianne is. I took this class and was hooked! To date, I've made over a dozen of them, in various sizes, but all round or oval. I love the way they feel under my feet. I've made them from 100% wool and from mysterious fabrics with mixed fiber content, but my favorites are the wool. The one pictured here is under construction and it will be a monster size. It's about 6' x 9' now, and I intend to take it up to the cabin, but for now it's in my sewing room, where it attracts a lot of threads. However, it is so nice to walk on that I think it will be here all winter.
I am currently writing a How to make a Braided Rug Tutorial, so that will be coming up later!
