Crocheted rug - Alfombra ganchillo


I crocheted this rug for the nursery in Erlenhof. I thought a lot about my dear Grandmother while I was making it. Back in the 60's or 70's, Grandma crocheted several 1:1 rugs rather similar to this. I remember that we had two green ones and a grey one in my home. When Grandma was not capable of crocheting anymore, she gave a bundle of her old crochet hooks to me, among them one big one which she used for crocheting rugs. It is very much bigger than the hook which I used for making this rug!

That is a beautiful rug and lovely memories. I have never seen a 1:1 crochet rug. The hook must have been quite large.
