Looking for a quick crochet project? This Crochet Mug Rug is a super easy and quick make. Small crochet projects like these mug rugs make perfect last minute gifts! It uses very little yarn and you can use up your leftover yarn from previous projects. I used cotton yarn, worsted medium weight (4). But you can use any type & thickness of yarn you like. All you need for this project is some yarn in two contrasting colours, crochet hook and scissors.
The halfway slippy mug rug uses half double crochet and slip stitch to create a subtly textured design. Mug rugs can be a fun alternative to standard coasters, especially in the summer! This pattern is free online at my website, and it includes a video tutorial to walk you through the pattern. It is also available as a PDF purchase, which includes this design and two other mug rug designs (each of which are also available online for free with video tutorials).
Of course, these accessories are easy and quick, but if you color coordinate them, they’ll be a designer-inspired center piece in your ablutionary decor.
