Mega Doily/Large Scale Crochet Rug

I have not seen this posted here before, and I thought I would be fun to share. I've thought about making rugs, but not quite like this.

The Mega Doily, try to match that gauge. hehe



Created by Jean with Ladies & Gentlemen Studios (Link opens in a new window) More photos at the website.

Can you imagine how long your rope would need to be to avoid tying on new lengths to continue, I already hate hiding joins in my work.

Edit 1-07-10: Giant knit furniture also, not crochet but still in the same vein as the doily. http://baukeknottnerus.nl/#anch0

I am getting these from a website called Curbly.com, and it's not about crochet or knitting, but interior decorating and random things to build or buy for your house. I'm looking for a house, and the website came up in my searches for building bed frames and painting concrete floors.

Oh, man, my boyfriend's mom found out I crochet and pulled out the rugs she'd made using old doily patterns. I hadn't realized this was a common practice!

I hot linked because I don't know how else to make the images show unless I put them on my Flickr, and I don't feel that's okay either, so hot linking won. They probably got blocked.

I've seen it at the hardware store, like Hope Depot or Lowes. My Dad used to be able to buy it at Walmart back in the day. On a smaller scale you can fine laundry line rope a little easier I suspect.

I'm having trouble finding cotton rope that is not twisted, here's one of the better links I found so far, http://www.knotandrope.com/store/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=6&gclid=CKC33ofxkJ8CFQvxDAodTGSlNw

Thanks! Now, if it only came in black, I would be totally committed.

HEY! I'm brilliant. It's not actually rope!!!!!
I recognize the box in the background of one of the pictures on the site. It's actually cotton piping used for home dec sewing projects, I'm guessing 1/2 inch wide.

At this scale, you want to learn how to splice rope.

what i was going to say :}
splicing makes joining much easier , can be done with yarn as well

There's a similar one for sale at crochetsoiree.com . I'm not giving a link, because you have to sign up for the site, but they have not spammed me.

I'd probably use fabric strips instead of rope, were I to do a rug like that.

I've used fabric strips to do something similar.

I've seen a book, and some patterns on Ravelry about just that.

You could use cotton rug yarn and your choice of a doily pattern to make these rugs.
