Mug Rug. Is It a Thing?

I have seen Mug Rugs on the Internet and knew I had to make some.
This seems like one of those things that you can have creative liberty on how you want to make them.
This first is just a chevron. I also used up some of my thread to make theses. I don't do a lot of doilies, so I used up some of my cotton thread by holding 2 or 3 strands together.

This next one did not turn out how I would of liked, but I do like the colors. I made it using one row of a special single crochet stitch (more on that in a bit) and a slip stitch row.

This next one is just done in single crochet. It is actually the first rug I made.

The remaining mug rugs are made using a special crochet stitch and I am going to share the pattern I used to make these.
Keep in mind that you can vary in the type of yarn , hook size, and a number of stiches on the foundation chain.

Special Single Crochet (SPSC): Insert hook in stitch just made and draw up a loop, insert the hook in the next stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all 3 loop.

chain 26
SC in the second chain from hook, SPSC along the remaining chains.
Row 1: chain1, SC in the next stitch, SPSC along the remaining stitches.
Repeat row 1 until you have the desired length.

You can finish off after the last row or do a border of sc around the rug. Most of rugs I did I added fringe.

This one was made with Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend Yarn.

All the remaining rugs were made with multiple strands of cotton thread.

This one has my favorite edge, you can find it here.
