What you need:

Yarn~ Your stash of worsted weight yarn. Minimum of 3 colors 400 yards each(I used 9 colors). You will hold 3 strands together, but the more colors the better!!!

I chose 9 of these colors from my stash to complete this rug.

Hook~ P

Scissors and Yarn Needle

Non-Skid Rug Mat

Size:

21″ x 34″ after blocking

Stitches:

  • St – Stitch
  • Ch – Chain
  • Sl St – Slip Stitch
  • Sc – Single Crochet

Instructions:

Tip – When changing color start with 3 different colors… I changed 1 strand at a time and carried my Yellow yarn through the whole project, just alternating the change of color with the other 2 colors in a large variety of colors. I used 9 total colors

Tip – For the first few rows, I placed stitch markers in the middle st of the 3 sts(corner) so it was easy to know what st to make the corners in. After a few rows it was easy to see and I didn’t use the markers any longer.

Row 1: Ch 2, 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join with sl st to beginning st. = 8 sc

Tip – You will want to block this rug into shape, using the steam or wet method… it will be a bit wavy if you don’t block

**If using your rug on a non-carpeted surface, make sure to use a non-skid pad underneath!


I used 9 of the colors in my stash… I have tons left.. So I will be making a larger rug to eat more of that stash up.. Stay tuned for another version of this rug!
