Linen Stitch Scrap Rug
Linen Stitch Scrap Rug

"This linen stitch rug is thick, soft, and squishy. It uses 5 strands of yarn at a time and does use up a lot of yarn. It was specifically designed to use up scrap yarns, with this method of combining scraps together. For my rug, I used mostly Red Heart Super Saver, with a few other yarns mixed in. The stitch pattern is a simple 2 stitch repeat, so can easily be adjusted to any size."


Crochet HookP/16 or 11.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet Gauge8 st x 8 rows = 4 inches in linen stitch pattern. After row 3 of pattern, your work should measure approximately 20 inches x 2 inches. Exact gauge is not critical for this project, and in fact if you are working with scraps of different brands, your gauge may vary slightly. Choose a hook size that is comfortable to work with but still gives you a dense, somewhat stiff fabric – it should feel a little tight as you are working with it. The overall size can be adjusted as necessary by using more or fewer stitches/rows.

Finished Size20 inches x 30 inches – Instructions include notes for adjusting size as desired.

Materials List

  • 1500-1800 yds worsted weight yarn. The pattern is designed to use up scrap yarns in various colors
  • Size P (11.5 mm) hook or appropriate size for your yarns (see Gauge for more info)
  • Yarn or Tapestry needle

I've been thinking lately about the need for area rugs at both my kitchen sink and in front of my laundry machines. I stand in those areas quite a bit with six of us in the family and I think that would relieve these tired achy feet a bit. This pattern would also be a wonderful stash buster and I'm about at that point again! I love the earthy, homey feel this pattern has and the directions seem to be well written too!

It really doesn't get any easier or more budget-friendly than this scrap rug. I happen to love her colors she used and I wish to make one exactly as pictured! My problem is such I have scraps but some of them are worsted weight medium weight and some are bulky or super bulky weight. I have tried to make scrap baskets using these left-over yarns and because of the differing weights I cannot ever get it to work up evenly- can't switch hooks midway... Other than that, I'd say just stick to one type or weight of yarn when doing scrap projects.

I love this Linen Stitch Scrap Rug! The pattern is so easy and a good way to get a one of a kind looking rug. I have a lot of partial skeins of yarn adding up in my craft room to use up. I can see a few of these rugs being made around here. So many different shades and unique color combinations can be done. I like that the pattern has you crocheting over the ends and not weaving them in. Looking forward to seeing what come out using this pattern. Thank you so much for this free pattern.

What a great way to use up scraps! I love the disheveled look. They sell these types of rugs at Wal-Mart but you can easily make your own!
