Crochet Rug

I’ve got plenty of lovely knitting on the needles… but sometimes you just want to whip up something quick and simple!

I bought a couple of packs of Rowan All Seasons Cotton years ago (it’s now discontinued) with the intention of knitting covers for my rocking chair cushions. That never happened! Our bedroom rugs were looking a bit tired and tatty so I decided to use the yarn to crochet a new rug to sit at the end of the bed.

It’s a bit floppy for a rug so I’ve used some starch it make it a bit firmer… and only time will tell how hard-wearing it is! I’ve put some non-slip rug backing underneath but haven’t attached it so the rug will be easily washable.

I used two strands of All Seasons Cotton and a big hook so it was super quick to crochet and is lovely and squishy underfoot! The doubled yarn and the colour gives it a lovely macrame-like texture.

Yay for quick, satisfying projects!
