Book Description

Turn your crochet talents—and hook—toward home to create decorative works of art for your floors. Showcases a variety of styles and techniques, from traditional patterns to contemporary looks for the modern home. 35+ projects range from quick and easy to more challenging and complex. Includes creative techniques for flat and shaggy rugs. Nola A. Heidbreder and Linda Pietz are sisters who have been designing, teaching, and collaborating all their lives. They knit, crochet, hook rugs, and appliqué creative designs. Nola works from her studio in St. Louis, Missouri, while Linda hails from northern California, but they get together to create as often as they can.

I cannot begin to think how much work has gone into this book. If you love to crochet and you want to make a rug then you really have to purchase this book. I really can't believe the variety of designs. The projects are split into sections;
Tantalizing Texture, Rugs That Tell a Story, Crazy for Colour, Tunisian Crochet,
Shaped Rugs and Alternative Materials. The patterns are all in written format
and are easy to follow. There isn't any indication of what level of crocheter you need to be but most of them seem quite simple and easy to make. My favorite has to be the "Proud Pines Sampler". It's based on a cross stitch sampler
and I love how it looks. The designs are so varied and I am sure you will find you a rug you will want to make. I can't wait to cover my house with beautiful rugs. There really is something for every household. It's well worth the money!!
