I was reminded of this while processing the 'So You Want to Make Rugs' book from American Thread. In the book there are two patterns to make braided rugs using yarn. Definitely not the same thing, but you know how memories are ... they show up whenever they want.
Here's the rugs from the American Threads Book.
For this rug, the braids are made and then crocheted together using single stitch crochet. It is called, as you might guess - Braided Rug. It measures 24 x 35 inches.
In case you'd like to give these a try, I've added both on a FREE BASIS (with immediate download) to my listings over at Craftsy. Just click on the link below the pictures.
I hope you make some marvelous braided rugs.
Thanks for dropping by,
