Crochet Rug : Written pattern & Tutorial

This crochet rug is a really simple project but it’s very versatile. You could use the same pattern to make place mats, rugs, and outdoor mats of any size. It’s really only limited by your imagination.

I used a jumbo weight outdoor yarn, but you could try several different types depending on what you decide to make. If you wanted a cozy crochet rug for your bedroom, you could use something nice and soft to the touch.

Stitches used & code

  • ch = chain
  • fl = front loop
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • st = stitch(es)
  • rep = repeat
  • rs = right side
  • ws = wrong side

Here’s video tutorial for this rug

Notes : If you want your project wider, add more chains in the beginning. If you want it taller, add more rows. I recommend placing the marker in each row you are on or using a row counter.

Measurement : 18.5″ wide x 15″ tall

    Hi. Your crochet tutorials are awesome. I came across one of your rug tutorial. Can I make the rug with 2 strands of 4ply acrylic yarn?

    Thank you! Yes, but keep in mind the rug may be a different size depending on the size yarn. It’s a rug, so if it’s a little bigger or smaller, it’s no problem.

    How much yarn did you have leftover? I’m wondering if I need to buy 2 skeins of each if I want to make a rug about 36″ x 24″ Thank you.

    I don’t remember for sure, but I don’t think I had much left. I’d say get 2. You’re welcome, hope that helps!
