Special Stitches
beg tr cl (beginning treble crochet cluster) (worked over 4 stitches) = Ch 3, *yo twice, insert hook in next stitch, yo and draw up a loop, [yo and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice; repeat from * 3 more times, yo and draw through all 5 loops on hook.
picot = Ch 2, sc in back bar of 2nd ch from hook.
tr cl (treble crochet cluster) (worked over 5 stitches) = Yo twice, insert hook in first stitch, yo and draw up a loop, [yo and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice, *yo twice, insert hook in next st, yo and draw up a loop, [yo and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice; repeat from * 3 more times, yo and draw through all 6 loops on hook.

Special Technique
Adjustable-ring method = Wrap yarn into a ring, ensuring that the tail falls behind the working yarn. Grip ring and tail firmly between middle finger and thumb. Insert hook through center of ring, yarn over (with working yarn) and draw up a loop. Work stitches of first round in the ring. After the first round of stitches is worked, pull gently, but firmly, on tail to tighten ring.

1. Rug is worked in joined rounds with right side facing at all times.
2. Yarn is too thick to thread through a standard yarn needle. Weave in ends with small crochet hook or large eyed needle used with plastic canvas projects.
3. Rug is intended to be used over carpet. If placed on a hardwood floor, designer recommends applying non-skid rug backing.

Make an adjustable ring.
Round 1 (right side): Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), 15 dc in ring; join with slip st in top of beginning ch-3—16 dc.
Round 2: Ch 6 (counts as first dc and ch 3), skip next dc, *dc in next dc, ch 3, skip next dc; repeat from * around; join with slip st to 3rd ch of beginning ch-6—8 ch-3 sps.
Round 3: Slip st in first ch-3 space, ch 3, 4 dc in same ch-3 space, 5 dc in each ch-3 space; join with slip st in top of beginning ch-3—40 dc.
Round 4: Ch 3, dc in next 4 dc, *ch 3, dc in next 5 dc; repeat from * around, ch 3; join with slip st in top of beginning ch-3—40 dc and 8 ch-3 sps.
Round 5: Beg tr cl, *ch 7, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 7, tr cl; repeat from * around, ch 3, tr in top of beginning ch-3 of beg tr cl—8 tr cl and 16 ch-7 sps.

Hi there! We recommend joining our AllFreeCrochet Community page and posting your great question there. One of our talented readers should be able to help you! Thank you!

This is a beautiful design but I dont really want it as a rug. It would make a wonderful table topper or if worked using a smaller sized hook, a nice doily. The original pattern can be found here http// == ug Youll have to choose a different colored yarn though since the Red Heart site advises that the Vivid Pink has been discontinued.

What an adorable accent rug. This would be perfect for that spot in the entry way just by the side table. The color used here will not go with the dcor but I think I want to use a color that will add a lot of pop. Thanks for the bold and beautiful accent rug.

I have made a lot of crochet projects and as of today, I have yet to crochet an accent rug. The color is really bold but I think I can make it work in the space that I want to use it in.

Oh! I've been thinking about entering an accent rug in our county fair and this may just be the ticket! The size makes it perfect to go in front of the kitchen sink, the laundry room, my crafting table. It's great because when it gets soiled you can just toss it in the laundry and clean it. It will give you a bit of extra cushion where ever you might need it. You can color coordinate it depending where you're going to use it. What's not to love about this "easy" accent rug!

I have seen a few of these rugs and they always catch my eye. I am finally going to crochet one for both sides of my bed. I think they are so cute. My bedroom is very shabby chic so this pattern will fit perfectly. I can't want to see how they look when done.

Wow. That is really a shockingly pink rug. Would be great for a little girls bedroom or bathroom. Very cute and simple pattern and I love how quickly the bulky yarn works up and it takes no time to complete a few of these. I changed the colors and made one for each of my bathrooms.

How did I not see this one before? I am loving this rug, from the round shape to the flowery look to the bright and bold pink color. It would make me happy to be sitting in a room with this at my feet. I am going to look for this yarn at Michaels. I hope it is not a discontinued yarn! This is probably the next project I am going to work on!

I made this pattern with crochet thread and it's coaster sized. I love it! Made a ton of them!

This rug might not be to everyone's taste but it sure is striking. My mom doesn't like it and she said it looks to her like a big doily. I however quite like it and I think I get what the designer was aiming for. I am definitely going to make this and if it doesn't work as a rug I'll hang it on a wall.

The final product looked nice and it would be a great addition to a bedroom or at the foot of an armchair. Seeing that others have had trouble following the pattern, I may make a sample first. danasap 8357731 and melc56 8509003 were kind enough to offer their advice upon noticing inconsistencies with the pattern. I hope that the pattern will be updated so that its more accuraet. codey1957 9342284 asked about making the pattern larger than 30" and I think perhaps using a bigger needle would help. This may alter the pattern, but one could also possibly add more "filler" rows to increase the pattern (i.e., repeating row 3 once or twice) or repeating the pattern so it gets bigger and then finishing off with the last few rows for the "edging."

I don't recall anything wrong. I made a bunch of coaster sized doilies with this pattern.

I find this pattern hard to follow. It was the waste of my time. The picture looks very nice but pattern written poorly

Hm. I've made this pattern many times and I just read through it. I don't find anything difficult about it. You could have asked for help instead of saying something so harsh that it was a waste.

A bold rug indeed. I think I'd like to see this in a girl's powder room or a girl's study room. Lovely. Thanks for having the pattern right on the same page. I will pin this for future reference,

I found a problem in the beginning of round 6 so i started the round by making 2 sl. st. in to the first ch-7 space and continued as written. it came out very nice.

How can you make this larger than 30"?

I made this rug but the last round is not written correctly...I was able to figure it out from the photo but I am a seasoned crocheter and it was not turned out 28 inches and it looks very nice!

The 5mm is for weaving in the ends. (See Notes 2) Use the 16 mm to make the rug.

Thank you all very much for the explanation.

I don't understand how is this rug made this big with a 5 mm hook? Please explain.. thanks

The istructions say to use "5mm H-8 US and 16mm Q US" So I assume that the large (Q) hook is used to actually crochet the rug. The instruction aslo say that the yarn is too big to weave in the ends using a regular needle and that the small (H) crochet hook should be used. Hope that helps!
