If you’re looking for a bigger project to take on this season, check out the new Textured Crochet Rug pattern.
It’s made up of alternating rows of single crochet, double crochet, and the bobble stitch. The rug also uses fringe detailing and decorative tassels to really make it stand out.
The pattern has you work the whole piece in a neutral gray tone. You can find the acrylic/wool blend yarn used here in the crochet kit I put together.
Every kit includes a digital PDF pattern and 8 skeins of Plymouth Encore Worsted Yarn in shade 7596 Natural.
The yarn is a soft 3-ply blend which makes it incredibly soft and durable. Perfect for a rug that is sure to experience the wear and tear of everyday life.
