YOU ARE SEEING THE RUG FOLDED IN HALF LENGTH WISE-the hallway is too narrow to unroll it completely! Amazing work --a narrow gauge marine rope was first crocheted, then those lengths were braided into a traditional room size marvel. A nice touch is the scalloped charcoal crochet edge that completes the whole rug. All the oval color sequences are 'outlined' in black to add am emphatic touch to the array of rope colors. Unbelievably durable because of the material, usuable indoors or outside, easy to hose down for cleaning.
