Featuring only two repeating rounds this Circular rug is great for beginner crocheters. This rug is homey and can be made in any color yarn or combination of colors to reflect your taste and your home décor. This rug is sure to brighten and warm any room of your house.
If you plan on using this rug on bare tile or wood floors I highly recommend getting a rubber rug backing and attaching it to the back. This will keep it from slipping.
