Hi there crochet friends!

I hope all of you had peaceful and family-filled holiday.  Whew, always love these holidays but man, sometimes they go on for weeks!

That’s OK because we have a lot to celebrate in life.

Did you travel this year? We stayed home this time and were thankful that our family would visit with us. Even though I stayed home, I didn’t have much time to crochet! How about you? I always hear that people get to crochet more on their vacations, but I sure didn’t.

And isn’t it always that when you get back from vacation, things have piled up so much that the first few days back are hectic and filled with to do’s.

That isn’t going to happen to me (yet). I have decided not to return to work until I get ahead of you all on the Crochet Rug. So my pile whittling will take place at the end of the week so I can get going with the rug.

Bear with me as I release this line by line.  If anyone is waiting and has time to crochet, I want to get the most out I can today.

Instructions for Rows 26 – 28:

Round 26 (BLO): Hdc to back loop of first st. In the same st hdc again. Hdc in next 15 sts. *2 Hdc in next st, hdc next 15 sts* around. (309 Hdc)

26th Round of Petals (FLO): Join with a sl st to 1st hdc, Ch 3, htr in same st. Make 2 Tr in the next st. In next st htr, Ch 3, sl st. *Sl st in next st, Ch 3, htr in same st. Make 2 Tr in the next st. In next st, htr, Ch 3, sl st* around. (102 petals)




Round 27 (BLO): Hdc to back loop of first st. In the same st hdc again. Hdc in next 15 sts. *2 Hdc in next st, hdc next 15 sts* around. (309 Hdc)



27th Round of Petals (FLO): Join with a sl st to 1st hdc, Ch 3, htr in same st. Make 2 Tr in the next st. In next st htr, Ch 3, sl st. *Sl st in next st, Ch 3, htr in same st. Make 2 Tr in the next st. In next st, htr, Ch 3, sl st* around. (102 petals)

I am wanting my Rug to lay flatter so I will keep making these same rounds (2 Hdc in next st, hdc next 15 sts and the Petals) until further notice.

Update 1/17/2017

I am working on the rug today 🙂 For round 28 I am making a round of HDC with no increase. I will then make the 28th round of petals. At that time I should see if the lack of increase worked to make the rug lie flat. Note: On the final pattern, I will know to stop increasing earlier to prevent any rippling. I just don’t have the heart to rip out five rows back to make this rug perfect. My second rug will be much cleaner.

If you are still hanging in there with me, YAY! I’m so happy.

Update 2/2/2017

I have worked the last row as above and I am done with the pattern now. It fits perfectly next to my tub, so I plan on leaving the pattern at 27 rows. I am going to test the pattern, and make changes at about the half way mark. I will write up a clean copy, on one page and with no ads and it will be available in my Etsy store for a small fee soon.

This version of the pattern will remain here. Thank you to those who have made the rug along with me. I appreciate all you kind words and comments.

Some of you have been kind enough to share pictures your rugs (or other projects) on the Facebook Page. Thank you tons. I love seeing your work! I definitely wouldn’t work this hard making a pretty website and sharing projects if I didn’t get to share them with you! So Thanks for the encouragement. I appreciate you. xo

Make it a Beautiful Day,

Hello All,

How are you progressing on your rug? Sorry if anyone ran out of pattern before today – my son graduated from Marine boot camp this past week and I was spending time with him instead of crocheting. I will get right to it.

But if you haven’t started yet, head on over to the first page of the pattern where you can find the supplies you need as well as some notes on the pattern. Or maybe you need page 2? I hope you will join us. We don’t know as of this writing how large we are going to make our rug, but I’m going to keep going if you are.  Let me know

Hello Crochet Friends,

So I have been working on this Crochet Rug for quite a while.  Increasing like a normal circle wasn’t working the bigger the rug got and the rug wouldn’t lay flat.

I did some research, tried a few small samples, and frogged my first Flower Crochet Rug. Yes, I did have a tear.  Just one.


I grabbed my hook and my new knowledge about crocheting circles, and got started again and this time – success!

The other day, I posted my rug to one of my Crochet Facebook Groups – Crochet Addicts Uncensored asking for advice.  One or two of the gals over there wanted to make the rug too!

So we’re all going to crochet the rug together! If you want to talk about the rug pattern, you can comment below or post/message my on my Facebook Page. Be brave and post your WIP (work in progress) pics!! Help me stay motivated to keep writing this up 😉

Do I need to give a disclaimer? I should just in case.

Ok, here it is…

This pattern is NOT written in professional form. This pattern has not been tested and may have mistakes – in fact I guarantee it does.  

I chose to live with the imperfections and just add or take away leftover stitches that didn’t work out. If you want to wait for the final version of the pattern, feel free. I will still leave this here 😉 I will also be creating a photo tutorial, once the pattern is complete.

I don’t know how much yarn I will need but I started with two 14 oz skeins of worsted weight white cotton.

Ok, let’s start this thing.  I will write up a few rounds at a time until I catch you up to where I am, ok? I’m still working on this pattern even though it is live. 

Materials

  • Start with 2 skeins of Lily Sugar’n Cream White Cotton Yarn
  • J hook
  • Stitch markers

The maker of Lily Sugar n’ Cream is Yarnspiration.com.  They currently have the Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Big Ball for $9.99 – sometimes they will have a sale.

I usually purchase it from either Michael’s or Joann’s depending on who has the better coupon, since I have both nearby. I have been ordering online at Joann’s lately because of certain color of cotton they don’t stock here for some reason – like Robin’s Egg Blue!?!?! My fav color!

Anyway, they ALWAYS have coupons, usually 40-60% off one regular priced item and anywhere from 25-30% off entire order – sometimes even sale and clearance products, so don’t order from either store without at least one! Here’s their coupon pages:

Notes

You will be making two passes for each round. One of hdcs and one of petals.

I use stitch markers to mark the first and last hdc stitches as we will be working in a spiral, with NO sl st at the end of each round. On your last petal of the round, your next stitch will be a Hdc, and after your last hdc, you will go right into making a petal.

Hello My Crocheting Friends,

Update – The Dahlia Flower Crochet Rug Pattern is now available in the KMI Shop!

 

Have you seen these darling Crochet rugs in your travels?!? Aren’t they to die for?

Crochet Rug

Seriously I have been drooling over them for days, they are absolutely gorrrrrrrrgeous. My brain is obsessed with locating a pattern.

But when will I find the time?? With the King, 5 little princes and princesses, a house to run, and…oh yeah, gotta do that “job” thing I do every day… This will be taking me forever!!

Crochet Rug

Is it worth it? I wasn’t sure… That is A LOT of yarn – A LOT!! And, it would requires so much time…and it would have to be done in the perfect shade of blue, grey and sea green, or just one color??…and my hands would be so darn tired because I would HAVE to force myself to work a little every day…hmmmmmmm




Then I did a search online and you know what? These Crochet Rugs are in the $700 – $1200 price range. Wowzers!! Um, yeah, it just may be worth it. I may not have this soft and squishy piece of loveliness in my house any time soon, but, darn it, I’m gonna try! Who’s with me??

Crochet Rug

Lol, you know what I just thought of?!? I may just never ever finish this Crochet Rug and have a ton of new coasters and potholders!! I better not join as I go… HA! I’ll have to request your address so I can pawn off a few pot holders onto you!! You wouldn’t mind, would you?

Crochet Rug

So what do you think? Any advice? tips? suggestions? Anyone want to commit me or better yet, come help with my Crochet Rug??? Please with a cherry on top??

Make it a Beautiful Day,

Hello My Crocheting Friends,

As you know, I love crocheting! I really do. Ask any of my friends. They ask me what I have been up to and I probably share some crochet project that I am excited about. I crochet most days. At least a few stitches. I love the feel of the yarn between my fingers. I love making all those little knots that turn into something useful as well as beautiful.

I love perusing the Internet for patterns and have quite a few bookmarked for another day. Tons of lovely afghans, clothing, hats, and other lovelies I can’t wait to start.

The storage problem

I get so excited about new projects that I find, I rarely finish large projects resulting in a huge stash of yarn. I will post a pic of all my yarn one of these days but luckily I have just moved so I don’t even have it all in the house yet since there are a few more boxes in the garage.

But anyway, small projects like these pot holders help me use up my yarn stash and provide a diversion from the large projects I find daunting and monotonous.

without further ado, here are your:
