Crochet Mug Rug

Crochet mug rug – The perfect item to give as a little gift or to make for yourself, use these coasters to give a splash of color on  your side and coffee tables, make with or without the tassels.

I have crocheted them in an acrylic worsted weight yarn but you can use the same ply in cotton if you wish.

Crochet Thick Potholder

My crochet thick potholder design has been made with 100% cotton yarn in 2 pieces and then joined together with single crochet stitch, I have used the very easy front loop, back loop technique.

It is a good pattern for beginner crocheters too, so hope you enjoy making it.

This is my first potholder on crochet ‘n’ create, if it’s received well I will do more patterns in different stitches and shapes, so make sure you pin it for later.
