With its beautiful and clear illustrations, this guide to rug weaving is an inspiring journey into a world of dazzling color and eye-catching design. From classic stripes to pattern-woven designs, detailed directions are provided for 45 rugs that represent a wide range of weaving techniques. Beginning with stripe and check weaves in simple tabby, the rugs progress in difficulty to intriguing challenges such as chenille, drall, diamond twill, rag inlay, repp, and rosepath weaves. Creative approaches to materials show how to cut strips from favorite old shirts, sheets, and jeans, and the emphasis throughout is on creative flair, imaginative design, and the pleasure of making a one-of-a-kind rug imbued with memories.

If you have or have use of a full-size floor loom, this book has delightful patterns- including how to make a rug for a spiral staircase!

If you don't have a floor loom but know how to read a loom pattern (its like reading a knitting pattern) this book is still useful.

If you have neither a loom or know how to read a loom pattern... well, the book has pretty pictures.
