Crocheted Sisal Rug - Grandmother's Pattern Book

 

With the simplest crochet stitches, a wonderfully textured room-size or area rug can be made with natural sisal rope. The rug is especially suited to a beach house, recreation room, porch, or patio as it resists soil and its open construction lets sand sift through.

You will need two-ply sisal rope (3/16 inch in diameter), available at craft and hardware stores in spools or reels weighing up to 50 pounds. The 10-by-10-foot rug pictured used two and a quarter 50-pound spools and spliced ends twice.
