vintage knitting pattern for rugs

Bestway 1359R: Fabulous vintage knitting pattern bedside rugs 1930s. Hand knitted in very thick wool on old size 3 or 6.5mm easy and so different. A great challenge. But you can make them smaller or in lighter ply wool or cotton to make them more manageable, lots of possiblilites. It is not so important what size needles you use or the size of the finished rug, but that it is a firm stable fabric that is produced, this will be easier with a thick firm wool or yarn - not too soft. The rare breeds wool, especially Herdwick, is great for this.Pattern isn good vintage condition.
