Rare Earth Rug
Nothing warms a New England winter more than a cozy rug to step onto first thing in the morning. This one is no exception, with its rich natural tones harmonising with the beauty of the world outside. The colours reflect the bare branches of aspen, birch and oak with their thick coating of snow which make this time of year so special for those of us who live in these cold, northerly climes. Even in more temperate areas, a beautiful natural-coloured rug would add a homely touch to any room.
The Rare Earth Rug can be worked from handspun or purchased yarns. The wonderfully gentle gradations of colour are achieved by working with two strands of yarn in ever-changing combinations.
NB: A co-ordinating pattern, the Rare Earth Cushions is available separately.
Pattern information: The pattern includes stitch charts and full line-by-line instructions and is available for immediate download.
