Over two years in the writing, this long-awaited book covers the lost folk art of making braided-in rugs. These rugs may look complicated but they are done with a simple process that automatically forms impressive swirling lines needles (see the upper right photo on the front cover of the book). Braided-in rugs don’t require any special tools—just a pair of scissors and a handful of safety pins or yarn.

The technique of making these rugs is a lost folk art, but these modern, reliable directions allow anyone to make rugs that lay flat without any guesswork.

Unlike regular braided rugs that have to be laced together, braided-in rugs are made in a single step, making them stronger and quicker to make. The book includes braided-in rugs made with two, four, six and eight strands—which are made with a simple weave that even beginners find is easy to learn.

Reliable step-by-step directions for both right- and left-handers allow beginning rug makers to recycle clothing or fabrics into impressive rugs or baskets. With twelve rug projects in a variety of shapes, rug makers of all skill levels can explore the unlimited design potential of these showy rugs.
