FIESTA DOILY RUG free Crochet Pattern

made with 1 one strand of Bernat Mega Bulky
When I first designed the Fiesta Swirls Doily pattern a friend told me that I should make it into a rug. At that time I my living quarters were pretty small, so I tended to keep my projects on the smaller side.  Fast forward to this year when I got an AMAZING deal on some Bernat Mega Bulky yarn. It was such a great deal that I bought it without having a plan. Then one day I remembered my friend suggested making my doily pattern into a rug. It started out just like the doily...but soon I realized it needed some MAJOR modifications so that it would lay flat. My first attempt looked like the pic at the right.

It took a few tries to get it just right. And the best thing is that the pattern is ONLY 19 rounds!! I started my last rug on a Saturday afternoon and finished it Sunday evening!! The sheer bulk of the yarn used will definitely cramp your hands if you are not used to working with this size hook and fiber. But the end results are GORGEOUS!!! Another great aspect of this pattern is that I have given you three different weights of yarn you can work with to get the same exact results just by changing the number of strands you are working with.

Remember....I am a human and sometimes make mistakes!!  If you find an error with my pattern, please let me know in the comment section and I will try to correct it as soon as possible!!! If you are having difficulty with my pattern, the best way to contact me for help is through my Amy B Stitched Facebook page.

made with two strands of Bulky/size 6 yarn.


Fiesta Doily Rug


SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate

SIZE: 44-46 inches Diameter

MATERIALS: There are several yarn options for making this rug listed below. You will also need a size N/10.0 mm or 9.0 mm crochet hook (the N hook comes in both sizes, so do not be confused) and a metal yarn needle with a very large eye for weaving in your ends. To make the rug “skid proof” I have used a “Kitchen, Bath & Plumbing premium siliconized sealant” to add lines (grippy stuff) to the back. Once dried it will grip to your slick/hard floor. Pic at the bottom of pattern.

1)      Bernat Mega Bulky Size 7/Jumbo, you will need approx. 97 ounces

2)      Big Twist Natural Blend Size 6/Super Bulky, you will need approx. 55 ounces worked double stranded.

3)      Any Size 4/Worsted Weight, you will need approx. 56 ounces of this weight, worked six stranded. I found that it was a great way to work from my stash using leftover yarn.  

     STITCHES AND TERMS USED:
Ch = chain
Sl st = slip stitch
Sp = space                                                                   
Sc = single crochet
Hdc = half double crochet
Dc = double crochet
Sk = skip
St/sts = stitch/stitches
Trc = treble crochet


SPECIAL STITCHES:
  • 3dc cl = 3 double crochet cluster: *yo, insert hook in ring, draw up a loop, yo, draw through two loops, repeat from * 2 more times, yo draw through all loops on hook.
  • 4dc cl = 4 double crochet cluster: *yo, insert hook in ring, draw up a loop, yo, draw through two loops, repeat from * 3 more times, yo draw through all loops on hook.
NOTES:
1.       Work your stitches tightly. You want a nice firm rug that will only come from tight stitches.
2.       The rug WILL be slippery if you do not add some sort of grip to the back. Either the sealant I have listed in the materials section OR some sort of rug tape to keep it in place on your floor.
3.       The first 5 rows of the rug may be slightly wavy. Do not worry, it should flatten out over rows 6 and 7.
