Crochet Rug : Written pattern & Tutorial

This 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.

Hope you enjoy, I’d love to see what projects you decide to make with this pattern. If you want to share, feel free to tag me on IG or FB.

Happy crocheting! 🙂


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


Row 1 ( ws ) color A : ch 41,1 sl st into second ch from hook and each st across. ( I insert hook into little bump on the back loop of each ch st) . Total of 40 st

Row 2 ( rs ) color A : Turn, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 fl sl st into each st across. Total of 40 st

Row 3 – 17 rep row 2 ( color A ) 

* I’ll change colors at the last st of row 17. (check picture below).  When we change colors: After I change color B, I cut color A.  When we change colors, we will always use the same technique. 

Row 18 – 21 rep row 2 ( color B ) * change color at the last st of row 21

Row 22 – 25 rep row 2 ( color A ) * change color at the last st of row 25

Row 26 – 42 rep row 2 ( color B )

*The end of row 42 cut the yarn and weave all ends

    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.
