1:48 scale Stickley rug, circa 1910

Needlepoint design by Anna-Carin Betzén, based on a full-scale rug

Gustav Stickley, leader of the American Arts&Crafts movement, designed a number of drugget rugs. These were hard-wearing flatweave rugs with bold repeating designs.

This is a design that came in different sizes; the large rugs have a proper border, while the small ones have just a plain stripe. If you want to alter the size of the large rug, please note that the border has a different repeat than the field, and that the ends of the field don't look the same. I.e., you can add/skip border repeats, and then fill in the field, without aiming for complete symmetry.

This design seems to have come in dark brown (a dull greenish shade) as well as navy blue.

The Stickley drugget rugs I've seen photos of all have a short, scruffy looking fringe, with no tabby strip visible.
