Today I want to share with you guys a simple, wonderful rug pattern. I created this pattern by adapting Leigh Radfords "Bath Mat" from her book Oneskein. I wanted the same plushy texture but I needed it much bigger!
This beauty measures approximately 45"x33" and is a super quick and easy crochet. I use mine as an outdoor rug but it could just as easily be used indoors.
I recommend using a bulky weight acrylic or cotton for this project so you can toss it in the wash whenever you need to.
This guy is crocheted with two strands held together so it's ridiculously squishy and soft. I'd call this a beginner to intermediate project. There's no shaping and you only need to know basic stitches; chain, single crochet, double crochet.
Here's the PDF pattern if you want to make your own soft, squishy crocheted rug!
PS. I'd use a non-slip mat or some strips of sticky tape if you plan to use this rug on a hard surface, it's safer that way!
Thanks for stopping by!
