pattern direction for the Rug

As you have appreciated the rug so much, I decided to give a rough idea of how to work on it.  This is not the pattern but it is how I did it…. you are free to use your imagination for the color choices as well as the finishing. so here it is….

Squares: make seven

row1: ch 11, sl st to form a ring.

row2: ch5, *3dc, ch2*,  7 times, 2dc, sl st at the 3rd ch of ch 5.

row3: ch3, 2dc in ch2 loop, *ch1, (3dc, ch3, 3dc) all in next ch2 loop, ch1, 3dc in next loop,* 3times, ch1,  (3dc, ch3, 3dc) all in next ch2 loop, ch1, sl st at the 3rd ch of ch3.

row4: ch3, 2dc in loop, *ch1, (3dc, ch3, 3dc) all in ch3 loop, ch1, 3dc in loop, ch1, 3dc in loop, * 3times, ch1, (3dc, ch3,3dc) in ch3 loop, ch1, 3dc in next loop, ch1, sl st at the 3rd ch of ch3.

work like above for the next rows; (3dc, ch3, 3dc) for ch3 loop and (ch1,3dc, ch1) for other loops; alternating the color of yarn after each 3rd row.

Joining the squares:

when you have made all seven squares, its time to join them.

Follow the chart to join and continue.

Proceeding in this way you will reach the center. When it is finished, add desired edge to the rug by working in contrast color. That’s it!  Enjoy!!

  1. This is a lovely rug. I was looking on Ravelry for inspiration for a new mat for the bedroom and found this. A really creative way to use squares. Thanks
