Simple Single Crochet Throw Rug

Good morning friends! A few weeks ago I mentioned to my crochet buddy Helen, I was going to crochet a throw rug for my bedroom. I searched for a rug pattern but I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I decided to wing it and not use a pattern.

I began March 6 and finished by a couple days later Well, almost finished… attaching the tassels and I’m all finished! Of course I had to finish before Sunday afternoon so I could show Helen.  I think the rug turned out pretty good. However, it is a tad to small for the bedroom, so it will be useful in my kitchen.

Looking Good!  ;o)

As I said earlier, I searched for a pattern and *I found one I really liked, but the pattern was a little hard to follow.  I was surprised how many free rug patterns I did find. I posted a few sites below if you are interested.
 Red Heart Worsted Super Saver
First, I used the following items to crochet my rug:
Yarn: Red Heart Worsted Super Saver
skeins Aran
2 skeins Frosty Green
Hook: H
Holding two strands and an sc stitch (single crochet) throughout
Yep!  That’s it… easy stitch… single crochet = sc

Here’s a few websites with free crochet rug patterns for you to bookmark.
