Thank you to Lion Brand Yarn for providing the yarn for this sample!

I have a fun new home decor pattern for you today! I experimented with Lion Brand’s cheerfully-colored Kitchen Cotton line to come up with this bright accent rug. I’m a big fan of color-blocking (colors striped in big chunks at a time), so I used that method when choosing this project’s color scheme. Smaller stripes of an off-white separate each of the color blocks to really make them pop. This accent rug would be perfect in a bathroom¬†or a nursery.

I double-stranded (held two strands together) my yarn for this pattern in order to get a nice sturdy rug. If you’re newer to crochet, this might sound intimidating, but you’ll get the hang of it quick! You may also find that it’s a little harder on your hands, because the hook has to work a little harder, but you can always set it aside for a day and come back to it with fresh fingers.

You can find this fun, sturdy yarn at lionbrand.com, or on Craftsy. At the time this blog post was published, Kitchen Cotton was on sale on Craftsy.com for just $2.03 a skein (regular $3.69). That’s a steal!

-

Level: Easy

Size: 20" (height) x 30" (width) 

Hook: H (5.00mm) 

Yarn: About 1,100 yards of Kitchen Cotton yarn from Lion Brand. (Kitchen Cotton is a #4 medium weight yarn.) I used the following colors and amounts:

Grape (about 280 yards, or less than 3 skeins) 
Bubblegum (about 280 yards, or less than 3 skeins) 
Tropic Breeze (about 280 yards, or less than 3 skeins) 
Vanilla (about 260 yards, or less than 3 skeins) 

You’ll also need: Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Gauge: 6 rows of 10 SC = 3" square (getting this exact is not super important unless you're wanting your rug to turn out the exact same size as mine)

Abbreviations Used:
   ST/STS (stitch/stitches)
   SL ST (slip stitch)
   SK (skip)
   CH (chain)
   SC (single crochet)
   HDC (half double crochet)
   SC+HDC (this just means to put a single crochet and a half double crochet in the same stitch)

Notes:
(1) This pattern is worked in American Standard Terms.
(2) CH1 at the beginning of rows does not count as a stitch.
(3) You will be double-stranding the entire pattern. (That means holding two strands of yarn together. This will give the rug stiffness.)
(4) You can easily change the size of this rug; just make sure to begin with any odd number of chains (to make it taller or shorter), and add or subtract rows as needed for a different width.
(5) The pattern below is written out according to my color changes, but the stitch pattern is actually just Rows 1-8, with  a continuous repeat of Rows 5-8. This is good information to have if you want to make a solid-colored rug, or if you want your color changes to be different than mine. 

Here are the colors I used, and how they'll be referenced in the pattern:
    COLOR A: Grape (purple)
    COLOR B: Vanilla (ivory)
    COLOR C: Bubblegum (pink)
    COLOR D: Tropic Breeze (aqua)

    Love it!

  • Tami Lindsay June 29, 2016, 9:24 am

    This is absolutely gorgeous. For what I paid for Better Homes and Gardens rugs for my bathroom, because the color was bright, I could have matched my shower curtain with these yarns. Thank you! I can feel a project coming on!

  • Willow June 29, 2016, 9:49 am

    Thanks Rebecca. I just love your pattern and your color choices. I’m heading out to get some kitchen cotton!!!

    ready, just take different colors, thanks, little Monkey.

    I love this. The colors are beautiful. I’ll have to find the yarn on line because I’m homebound. Thank you for your patterns.

  • Tina Hopkins June 29, 2016, 7:25 pm

    I just love the colors that you chose for this rug. I personally love bright colors for many things that I crochet.

  • Lori Aragon June 29, 2016, 9:15 pm

    Thank you sooooo much for this GORGEOUS pattern! This is definitely on my To-Do-List – going right to the top of the list now ūüôā xoxo

  • Pamela July 1, 2016, 7:39 pm

    Hello Rebecca – Thank you for sharing your very pretty pattern. It is just what I have been looking for in a nice solid cotton bathroom rug. I was thinking about doing one rug with the two strands as in your pattern, and, another rug with one strand of a bulky (#5) yarn. Not sure how the latter will work. Fun ahead. Thanks again.

  • Jenelle Glanz July 2, 2016, 10:45 am

    I would like to make this rug, does it have to be cotton? I’ve got quite the stash of acrylic yarn!! Thanks, Jenelle

    • Rebecca July 5, 2016, 1:38 pm

      The pattern will work with acrylic. I recommend cotton simply because it holds up and dries quickly (which is good if you use it in a bathroom) but you can use whatever you have ūüôā

  • Gema Girasol July 7, 2016, 1:22 pm

    my yarns to mi bubble gum accent ,in color blueberry because is to boy.

  • Terrie Harrell July 7, 2016, 4:19 pm

    Thank you for sharing this free pattern. I can’t wait to get some yarn and start a project.

  • Barbara July 9, 2016, 12:42 pm

    I absolutely love this pattern! Given the colors in my bathroom I need something a little simpler. I was thinking of doing the 2 stranded but each strand a different color to get a tweed affect. Then my brain seized! If you add the total yardage from the pattern it equals 1100 yds … so do I have it right that I would then want 550 yds of each color?

  • gema July 9, 2016, 2:00 pm

    so is my Rug blueberries, Rebecca thanks for this beautiful pattern….https://www.facebook.com/gema.gomez.18

  • Karen M. Roth July 10, 2016, 1:03 am

    Love the patterns. Looking forward to trying some of these patterns.

  • Rhonda Tenderholt August 11, 2016, 1:34 pm

    It’s beautiful. Looks like it should be an afghan/blanket instead! I’m sure it would be beautiful as one of those.
