This rug is a popular design from ‘Lakeland’. It’s easy to crochet for the confident beginner to try as it’s basically a large ‘granny square’. The rug is worked on a 12mm (not the stated 12.75mm) hook and then once finished is felted in a washing machine.

Finished dimensions:

  • Completed unwashed rug measures 105 cm (41½ inches) wide and 165 cm (65 inches) long.
  • Completed felted rug measures 77 cm (30½ inches) wide and 122 cm (48 inches) long.
