Modern Shag Rug
Put this Modern Shag Rug in your bathroom for a fun ocean feel. This crochet rug pattern is perfect for little boys who just want something comfy to rub their feel all over when they step out of the tub. It will match all of your underwater bathroom decor when worked up in the cool blue colors, but could also be switched out with pinks to add a more girly touch. This fun rug gets its look from a combination of super bulky and worsted weight yarn.
