How to Crochet Old Fashioned Rag Rugs – A Video
I wrote a two-part article about how to crochet old-fashioned rag rugs a few months ago. I did my best to show in print how to make something that really is best shown in real life. At least that’s the way I think about it. I thought, well, people who are familiar with crocheting won’t have a problem, but I worried about all the newbies who might think it was confusing or were just visual people who needed to see it in real life.
I couldn’t bring Anna herself into your living room so I thought, “What’s the next best thing? I should really make a YouTube video.” So I did.
Finally after all this time I have succeeded. I invited my good friend and teacher Anna Dearing to help me make the video. So here it is and I hope this helps you make rag rugs for yourself. The video itself is not all slick and Hollywood. It’s just me and Anna (with my husband as videographer and he does a most excellent job as cameraman and editor. Thank you, Marty!)
Yes, it’s just me and Anna having a “conversation” about how to crochet old-fashioned rag rugs as the subject.
