My buddy Anita had these handmade rugs in her house which are thick and comfortable to stand on while at the sink. She told me how simple they were to crochet. A few years ago I made three for our house, one for my Mom and another for Mum-in-Law. Now, this one is for Tien.
Made from four strands of Red Heart yarn and a gigantic crochet hook, these acrylic rugs wash/dry nicely and stay in place with a rubber grip. Starting with 40 chains, I worked row after row of single crochet stitch for about three hours and it is nearly complete. Just need to do a few more rows, then finish the entire outside edge with a final row of single crochet. Hmm, might be really cute with a shell stitch edge (if it weren't for a man).
