When I found this yarn, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it, but it was big and squishy, so I bought it anyway. Once I got home, I decided I needed a kitchen rug, and this yarn was perfect! This pattern worked up very quickly, and the finished rug is beautiful and so soft to walk on. Plus, it couldn’t be simpler. It’s a perfect pattern for beginners. The finished size is 20″ x 38″.
Bernat Maker Big yarn in Pebbles Variegated – 3 skeins
Hook size Q – 15mm
Ch – chain
Sc – single crochet
Dc – double crochet
Ss – slip stitch
Sp – space
St, sts – stitch, stitches
1. Ch 1 and ch 2 at beginning of rows do not count as stitches
2. The edging is optional but I think it gives it a nice finish.
3. This yarn is tubular. To avoid it coming apart, I tied a knot on the cut edges (see photo), but this is totally optional.
Body of rug
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and across to the end. 43 sts
Row 2: Turn, ch 2, dc in 1st st and across to end.
Row 3: Turn, ch 1, sc in 1st st and across to end.
Rows 4-19: Repeat rows 2 and 3, ending with row 2 pattern.
At the end of your last row, ss in the corner sp.
Continue slip stitching across the long side of the rug.
When you get to the other corner, (ss, ch 1, ss) all in the one corner space.
When you ss down the short sides, be sure to put your hook into the sts, not the holes. Otherwise, it’ll be too bulky.
At the last corner, ss, then ch 1 and tie off.
Weave in ends.
