In the 1980's there has been a huge revival in the art of knitting which gradually became a "designer medium" with its subsequent links to a strong and flourishing British fashion industry. This in turn spawned a large number of successful knitting books. While knitting requires considerable skill, rugs are easy to make and cost a fraction of the price of ready-made ones. "Magic Carpets" features 30 original rug designs with full instructions on how to make them and simple colour graphs to follow. The basic techniques of latch hooking and cross stitch are given at the beginning of the book and there is a brief history of rugs and rug making.
