Hi Everyone! I am excited to share this crochet rug tutorial with you! My daughter is getting a little bedroom makeover and I decided to have this be one of the handmade things that I added in there. She LOVES it, she like to curl up on it with the puppy after school and play with her toys, it’s pretty cute.
Crochet Rug Tutorial with Petal Edge
Materials for Crochet Rug
9 balls of worsted weight yarn (Each color needs 3 balls). I used Red Heart Super Saver.
I used an M hook, you can adjust this to your liking. I recommend not letting the stitches get too large.
Large Yarn needle
Rug measures 41 inches in diameter
The rug is puppy approved too, which makes it extra convenient that this rug is washable 😉
hdc or half double crochet is UK: dc or double crochet
Take the 3 strands of yarn from your first color and using all 3 strands at once, start with a magic ring.
Round 1: hdc 12 inside the magic right, slip stitch to finish round, ch 2
Round 2: 2hdc in each stitch all the way around for a total of 24. Add new color if desired, slip stitch closed, ch 2. (I did 2 rounds for each color, you may modify that if you like). Trim first color leaving tails long enough to weave in.
Round 3: 2hdc in the first stitch, hdc and repeat all the way around for a total of 36, slip stitch, ch 2.
Round 4: 2hdc in the first stitch and then hdc 2 (2 next to each other NOT in the same stitch) and repeat for a total of 48 stitches. Add new color if desired, slip stitch and ch 2, trim yarn.
Round 5: 2 hdc in the first stitch, hdc 3 and repeat, 60 stitches, slip stitch to finish round and ch 2
Round 6:2 hdc in the first stitch, hdc 4 and repeat, 72 stitches, add new color if desired, slip stitch to finish round and ch 2
Round 7: 2 hdc in the first stitch, hdc 5 and repeat, 84 stitches, slip stitch to finish round and ch 2
Round 8: 2 hdc in the first stitch, hdc 6 and repeat, 96 stitches, add new color if desired, slip stitch to finish round and ch 2
Round 9: 2 hdc in the first stitch, hdc 7 and repeat, 108 stitches, slip stitch to finish round and ch 2
Round 10: 2 hdc in the first stitch, hdc 8 and repeat, 120 stitches, add new color if desired, slip stitch to finish round and ch 2
Round 11 – I noticed some rippling beginning to occur. This is probably due to the fact that I tend to start out projects crocheting tightly and loosen up as I go. If this happens to you, I recommend doing 1 round of only 1 hdc in each stitch going all the way around to pull things in a bit and keep your numbers in order. Add 12 to each round and keep track of your numbers to help you.
Continue following the pattern until you reach the desired size of rug or you run out of yarn.
I added the border after a pink round and the rug measured: 38 inches in diameter (I probably could have done 1 more round of each color with the remaining yarn, but this was a better size)
The Petal Edge
ch 1, sc and hdc in the first stitch. In the next stitch place 2dc. In the next stitch place 2tr stitches. In the next stitch place 2dc. In the next stitch place a hdc followed by a sc. Place 4 slip stitches in between petals. Each petal needs 5 stitches to be complete. I recommend taking a look at how many stitches you have on the last round you crocheted so that you can finish out the petals and not end the edging with only half a petal made. You can add or subtract those 4 slip stitches in between the petals to make your adjustment.
What do you think of my crochet rug tutorial? I love how cushy it turned out, should I make another one? Maybe a different shape? Let me know in the comments!
