This morning I saw I love pom-poms’s post about the amazing Nona Pepa rug. It’s the first time I’ve seen this amazing flowery rug by Natalie Pepe.  Can you imagine how many hours must have gone into making and attaching all those tiny flowers?!


This rug reminded me of another rug I saw on Pinterest. This time it’s a granny square rug by Kasthall called Karin. Here the grannies are printed on the wool of the rug. Far less work  than crocheting every granny square, and just as amazingly beautiful. Isn’t it amazing?!  It’s named after the designer’s grandmother who loved to crochet.

Lately I’ve also been seeing a lot of big doilie style crochet rugs. If I had a bigger house I would definitely make one. In ihanitse’s Etsy shop (ihanitse is Finnish for “made by myself”) you can buy ready made rugs, or buy the pattern from the designer to tackle your own – using a size 6 hook and super chunky yarn. Isn’t it just beautiful?!

Now that I lay down the groundwork (see what I did there?) High Five to walking on crochet!!
