I'm in the process of knitting a nice rug/mat for the kitchen. It is made out of Cascade 220. I will be putting it down on hardwood flooring and am wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of thing. I'm concerned with it sliding or slipping out from under my feet. Has anyone made one and did they put any backing on it? Or was it fine without it? Thanks
Hobby Lobby sells a backing for latch hook rugs that is painted on. It dries white and can be washed within 2 weeks of application. Not sure about putting it in the dryer. I use it on the bottom of felted slippers and it works great. I jar (maybe a pint?) goes a long ways. I think I've done 5 pairs of slippers with it and I have quite a bit left yet. It costs about $9.99 a jar.

If you go to Home Depot to the carpet dept. They used to sell small rolls of a rubber type material that you can cut to fit under throw rugs to keep them from slipping. You can also find a lighter weight product of the same material to line kitchen cupboards. I use this material under my rag rugs on linoleum to keep them from sliding underfoot.
