How do you crochet a braided rug?

What kind of thread do you use for braided rugs?

Thread a heavy-duty sewing needle with sturdy polyester thread. Needles and thread designed for upholstery work best. Tie the two ends of the thread together in a single overhand knot and snip off all but 1/2 inch of the excess thread with scissors.

What size crochet hook do you need to make a rag rug?
