Dog Bone Rug and Pattern

Designing a dog bone rug is not as easy as it looks, 
And there is math involved. 
Okay I will be honest and say, "I am math challenged".
 I can't even balance the check book! 
 Don't get me wrong, I am very smart, I just can't add!   
But you just don't realize the amount of math skills it takes 
to design a crochet pattern !  
It even involves fractions!!!!!!!!!   

The completed the Dog Bone Rug!  YAY! 
 I really do think it turned out so cool!  
I love how all the colors of the yarns look. 
It sort of reminds me of the braided rugs my grandma
 used to have in her house. 
As you can see the rug measures about 29 to 30 inches. 
 But it can be made bigger, 
but that would include a lot more math.(yikes!)

Now to write down the pattern...
I mean I have all the math calcualtions,
 the increases and decreases, stitches and chains, 
but they are all in head!    
Okay, here I go....................

I really like the colors in this test Rug.
