The Nicolette Mug Rug – Free Crochet Pattern

Ravelry // Etsy // Pinterest // All Free Crochet // Fave Crafts

When your sister in law wants you to make her something, you do it, right?

She and the ladies at her work discovered that their iced coffees weren’t good for their business’s counters, so i thought, “Oh, let’s make coasters!” However, they had heard of “mug rugs” and wanted one of those, so i decided to put my own spin on it and created the Nicolette Mug Rug, named after the lady who convinced me to do this in the first place πŸ˜‰

How to do the Double Crochet Puff Stitch

Yarn over, insert hook into designated stitch. Pull up a loop. Yarn over and insert hook again, pulling up another loop. Yarn over once more and pull through all loops on hook.

How to do the Single Crochet Puff Stitch

Insert hook into designated stitch. Pull up a loop. Yarn over and insert hook, pulling up another loop. Yarn over once more and pull through all loops on hook.

This differs from the double crochet puff stitch in that you do not yarn over before inserting hook into the designated stitch the first time, pretty much the same difference between the normal single and double crochet stitches!

How to do the Half Double Crochet

Yarn over and insert hook into designated stitch. pull up a loop. yarn over and pull through all loops on hook.

  • ch 1. cut a tail and pull the rest of the yarn through with your hook
  • sew in both tails {from the end and from the foundation chain} with yarn needle. Cut off any remaining yarn. This will help to keep your work secure and from coming undone.

Adding the Fringe

  • Cut 3 pieces of yarn [can be the same color as the mug rug or a different color to accent it!] 12 different times. You want them to be about 6 inches each.
  • In between the v’s and the corner spaces, tie the three pieces of yarn together, pulling them tight so that they are nice and firm.
  • Cut the fringe to your desired length or leave them as is, just making sure that they are all close to the same length!
  • Once this pattern is done once, it’s easy to do it many times! They are pretty quick and simple to make!
