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.
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.
