How to make a rug in simple Russian stitch
The step by step competes with an oval Russian crochet rug in dimensions: 72 cm x 45 cm.
Step by step
Start with 44 chains + 3 chains to make the height of a double crochet. Go back in the last chain and make 5 more double crochets to form the rounded corner of 6 double crochets.
Continue on the career by placing a high point over each base point and at the other end make the same fan of high points to be rounded.
The first three rows that make a complete oval are made with double crochets.
The top rows that intersperse in the Russian model are formed with small rings.
To do this, make 1 single crochet + three chains + 1 single crochet in the same space. Follow by skipping a base point and repeating the sequence. Finish the rows with two slip stitches, one inside the starting point and the other inside the loop.
Make three more rows with 4 chains to form the rings, so you finish the first part of rows with rings. Then, the next row starts with two chains + 3 single crochets in the nine loops that form the curve of the rug.
In the rings that follow the straight length, make only 2 single crochets in each one, without separating chains. Then make two rows of double crochets, one crochet for each base stitch, in the spaces of the two chains make two double crochets.
Make two more sections to extend your rug with rows of rings, interspersed with a section of rows of double crochets.
In the last part of rows with rings, make 2 rows with 3 chains and a row (the last one) with 2 chains in each ring. The ringlets form small ruffles on the edge.

Rectangular Russian rug models
The rectangular model of the Russian rug can appear with unusual novelties, despite the format being one of the most traditional.
For example, the corners can build different shapes, as in the intention of forming a trapeze. Or, the edges of the rectangle appear in the form of ruffles or fringes.
The piece can start round and gradually take on a rectangular shape, for example. Colors can mix, contouring different designs, such as triangular, square or sinuous figures.

giant russian rug
The giant size is great for large rooms. But this also depends on the size/quantity of objects and furniture around, so that these, together with the rug, do not suffocate the decoration of the environment.
It is interesting to place the giant Russian rug under a wooden table or in the center of rooms between sofas.
The rooms suggested for this piece are living rooms and bedrooms, but they can also be installed on covered verandas and leisure areas. As for its shape and appearance, it is up to the craftsman or craftswoman to work with the different designs, textures and colors.
round rug ideas
For large environments, the suggestion is to bet on giant rugs. Giants can decorate rooms and balconies in a special way.
Flower designs are the most requested, as it is possible to vary the stitches used a lot and within that create incredible mandala designs.
Some dots on the edges can serve to create high relief or this relief can appear creating layers in the drawings of the leaves or petals of the flower.
Round yellow rugs are inspired by the figure of the sun, with this they manage to convey the sensation of luminosity and also create different forms of solar rays.
Remember that flower designs, as well as stars and mandalas, can be done in different ways. The designs can have straight lines inside and this leaves the rug with a beautiful contrast.

square russian rug
The size suggestions for the square Russian rug are the same as for the round Russian rug. Make the piece according to the size of the room in your house.
This format is very good for creating repetitions of shapes in straight lines and can also mix circular or sinuous shapes.
It is interesting to choose to make sinuous edges and in the center keep harder points and marked by straight lines. The reverse is also a great option, leave the edges compact in straight lines, well filled in, but in the center make sinuous figures and empty spaces.
This can happen if, when you start weaving a circle, for example, like someone who wants to create a mandala, you end up finishing the piece with straight and proportional sides.
oval russian rug
The oval Russian rug is the most classic model and fits well in any size, as well as in the rectangular shape.
Take care to leave the edge in the desired shape, on this rug two sides are rounded (on the sides) and the other two are straight. The ideal is to start the piece from the beginning in the oval format so as not to get lost.
There are several models that mix colors and styles. But whatever format you choose, be creative.
Colors are great allies, they can cause contrast at the edges, create gradient effects or even make details that soften or make the piece more daring.
In any case, learning how to crochet a Russian rug is a continuous job, versatility is its great quality.
