I’ve been wanting to design a crochet rug for ages, and having just moved, I finally knew just what I wanted to make! Inspired by the ocean themed children’s bathroom in our new home, I’m proud to present the Little Waves Crochet Rug!
The Little Waves Crochet Rug features double thick V stitches and front post stitches to create little waves across the fabric. I used oceanic colors – blues, green, white – to create a rug to go with the raindrop shower curtain (and some other future projects!), but you can make this pattern in any colors you like. And I think it would look fantastic in any room of the house! Remember though, if you’re using it on a non-carpeted floor, to use something to make it non-slip.
