Materials: HOME-TIES KENTUCKY SOFT SPUN RUG YARN—Crochet Hook Size "J" or 9—For 22" x 30" Rug—Working from center—2 Skeins Colonial Green (8 Rounds)—2 Skeins Cocoa Brown (5 Rounds)—3 Skeins Dark Green (5 Rounds)—4 Skeins Dark Brown (6 Rounds)—Other Colors as desired.

To Start: Using 2 strands of yarn, make foundation chain of 21, turn on 2nd ch from hook and sc 40 around the chain (20 sc on each side of ch). 2nd Round—Continue to sc around, increasing twice at each end. 3rd Round—Continue to sc around, increasing 3 times at each end. 4th and following Rounds—Continue to sc around, increasing only at ends, and only as required to keep rug flat. If rug begins to turn up it is because it requires more frequent increasing at ends. Be sure not to increase at same point at ends in succeeding rounds to avoid forming an undesirable pattern. Work a slip stitch over last row for improved edge.

To Change Colors: Break off the yarn, leaving a 3" length, and slip this through the back of the next stitch. Turn rug around about half way and start with the new color. Continue to sc around as before, and when you come to the 3" length of the previous color, carry it in with the new color. This manner of joining colors will give complete and even rows. (Do not start a new color at point where you break off old color.)
