Got a bowl shaped rug? I

Got a bowl shaped rug?
I haven't tried making one of these rugs yet - I plan to ASAP! But I crochet. If I want to crochet a flat round shape this is how I would convert the instructions (I think) for this rug.

ROUND RUG.
I would start with 3 or 4 stitches or knots, then when I switched directions I would put TWO knots in each hole until I had gone all the way around to my starting place (filling 6 or 8 holes, and making 12 or 16 knots).
On the next round I would put TWO knots in EVERY OTHER hole so you would make about 18 or 24 total knots for that round. The 3rd round you would put TWO knots every third hole, the 4th round two knots every fourth hole, etc.

OVAL RUG.
To make it OVAL, you would calculate the number of starting knots by subtracting [how long you want your rug] by [how wide you want your rug].
If you want your rug to be 24" x 36" you would make you starting row of knots (36-24=12) 12" long.

Then you would do TWO knots in one hole (called an increase) only on the ENDS OF THE RUG and not on the long sides of it.

I've never done an oval in crochet so I don't know the math for it, but it should be very similar:
increase every other knot in the 2nd time around, increase every 3rd knot in the third time around, etc. except ONLY on the curved ends of the oval, not the along the straight sides.

As I said, I haven't tried to make a toothbrush rug yet, so there may be some dynamic I don't know about, but this is the technique used to make circles in crocheting and I would think it would work here also.

As I said before, I LOVE these videos - they are so well done!

Did you ever make this rug

on a regular basis. It carries pleasant stuff.

First off I would like to say

First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd
like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you
center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

Hi, i think that i noticed you visited my blog thus i came to return the desire?.I'm trying to in finding issues to improve
my website!I suppose its adequate to make use of some of your ideas!!

Hi, To combat the "hat"

Hi,
To combat the "hat" shape, you need to add two stiches in a hole every few holes. I make a lot of oval rag rugs and just add a few extra stitches at the rounded parts on each end.

Also, if the rug is just slightly curling, you can get it to flatten by soaking it with water, putting it between two towels and weighting it down to flatten. The problem will be that you will have to do this each time you wash the rug.

I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

I love your videos. Thank

I love your videos. Thank you. Have started my first rug. I’m trying to make an oval rug. It started out as an oval but as I’ve continued it has gotten more round than oval.

Also the stitches are getting longer. Can you please explain about the “doubles”? What exactly are they and when to use them? Do they keep the 2 problems I mentioned from happening (i.e. longer stitches & oval becoming rounded)?

Thank you for any help you can provide!

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter

I’m so excited! Thanks so

I’m so excited! Thanks so much for your instructions. Years ago I had a friend that taught me the basics for braided rag rugs and I started one but never finished it. I was thinking about trying again, so I was looking for instructions on the net when I ran across the toothbrush rugs and I knew I that was the rug for me. For my house I need rectangle rugs. Do you think you will ever do instructions for them?
