This first volume of the Rugmaker's Handbook series is designed to teach textile explorers of all skill levels to make knitted rag rugs from fabric strip, using basic stitches. Step-by-step directions make it easy to create knitted rugs in many different forms and designs, including shaggy rugs like the Shaker confetti rugs. Special techniques include how to make strip or block assembly rugs, coil knitted rugs, wedge knitted rugs, bullseye rugs, hexagonal and even two methods to knit a heart shaped rug. For non-knitters, rake and spool knitting techniques are included for rug making. Unique textures in knitted rugs include using cross woven methods and knitting a soumak weave as well as unusual stitches such as the corn-on-the-cob and woven fabric stitch. This classic book has been revised, expanded and updated and for the first time includes directions to adapt rug patterns to many different materials, including yarns. This is not a craft book, but rather a reference book and includes many techniques never before published."
