Crochet bathroom rug

I am really bored, you may think, but actually I am totally in love in crochet. I just want to sit and crochet and crochet and crochet :) First day I’ve decided to make that rug we went to a Michaels and I bought just 2 balls of yarn. One black and one blue. After two days I had to go back there and buy 2 more. Even then it wasn’t enough, so we ended up going to the store one more time for two more balls, and there is just a little bit black yarn left.

If you interested this is the pattern:

Ch 55, 2 s c in 2nd st from hook, 1 s c in each remaining st of ch, working 4 s c in end st of ch, working on opposite side of ch, 1 s c in each remaining st, working 2 s c in same st as beginning, join in 1st sc.

2nd Round. 2 s c in same space, 2 s c in next st, 1 s c in each of the next 52 sts, 2 s c in each of the next 4 sts, 1 s c in each of the next 52 sts, 2 s c in each of the next 2 sts, do not join or turn this or following rounds. Place a marker at beginning of each round.

Next (x) Rounds. 1 s c in each s c increasing at both ends when necessary to keep work flat, join at end of last round.

Last round: sl around. fasten off.

Bacause I do not have the exact amount of stiches to increase in each row a few times I ended up unraveling rounds because it was too much (and the edges started to wave) or it was too little (and the edges started to curl).

Because I used two colors it’s very visible where I joined them. I kind of don’t like it. Next time I’ll know that in a pattern that you do not join rounds I should use one color if I don’t want the joints to be that visible.

Now I’m planning to make matching toilet seat cover, and top tray :)

In addition I keep forgetting about one great think that have happened to me a few days ago. My picture was featured at Evoking You. I am really happy about that.

  1. Gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday. If you end each round by slip stitching into the first stitch of each round and then joining the new color, you will not get the look that bothered you. If seems like you crocheted this more like a spiral as opposed to rounds. Happy crocheting, I totally identify with your desire to crochet! I’d recommend trying to crochet with sheets and plastic bags (both on my blog) it’s so much fun!
