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,

  1. Hello,
    I am making this rug as a gift for my granddaughter. I need to make it between 4 and 5 feet. Should I just continue with the above stitches and increases. Also, How do you decrease because my rug in rolling in also.
    Thank you
    Coral

    1. Hi Coral,

      I am sorry I haven’t been giving it much attention, so many projects and work. I just want to crochet all day! But enough about my worries, the rug… I was going to try to make a round of HDC with no increase at all. Not even the two two hdc in the same stitch. If that didn’t work, I was going to try going back to 14. If that didn’t work, I would have to pull out a few rows and continue with 14 sts for a while. Please let me know if that works or if you need more help. I will do my best to schedule time this week to work on more rounds. Thanks for your comment Coral and keep me posted!! xo Karla

  2. I had to decrease on a couple rounds because my rug started folding in and not laying flat as well. I now have a couple more rounds than you posted but am already on your round 28. I will continue with the increase every 15 htrfor about 3 more rounds then I will change to every 16. I haven’t found part 6 of this pattern yet.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I am doing the same thing. I haven’t posted a part 6 yet. Hope you are enjoying the rug! xo

  3. I started this rug 2 days ago and I am on Part 3. The rug is coming out nicely. Just a few things: I am getting more petals. I noticed it is better to squeeze in a petal rather than slip stitch to the end because it starts showing that the last petal is either a bit stretched out or it looks like a petal is missing. I am glad I found this pattern and I am glad you are adding on. I was afraid I was going to have to figure the next patterns out myself since I want a bigger rug. Also, I can imagine playing with colors with this rug, can come out really nice. I am using 100% cotton and I think it’s better than polyester.

    1. Hello Friend! Thanks for your comments. I think the more petals, the better 🙂 I would love to see it. You can post to my Facebook Page Keep me posted on your progress and share this free pattern with your friends. Thank you so much!! xo
