How cool is that? Perrrfect for your own home, as a gift to someone, and particularly, as a Fathers day gift. Lion Brand is the designer of this amazingly fun, modern or manly rug. I can see it in so many settings.

The free crochet pattern for this rug / mat measures about 22 x 30” or 56 x 76 cm. However, you can of course adjust the length and the width of it to suit your needs.

A Note on Color

While it looks like it’s made with just one color green, it’s actually consists of three shades, which lends it that natural look. While I personally like the grass look of it, making it into a perfect doormat in front of French doors leading to a garden or porch, this rug will look good in many different colors. Pink, fuchsia and red? Three color sand? White, plus two off-whites?

Crochet Hook – Size S-35 ‘Speed Hook’

Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)

GAUGE:

9 loops = 8 in. (20.5 cm) in pattern with 5 strands of yarn held tog. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Front Loop Stitch: Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in front of work as follows: Bring working yarn to the front; hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook. Leaving a loop of yarn in the front, bring working yarn to back of work. Insert hook in same st and draw up a loop – 3 loops on hook. Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.

Back Loop Stitch: Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in back of work as follows: Working yarn should be at back of work, hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook. Leaving a loop of yarn in the back, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop – 3 loops on hook. Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.

NOTES:

1. Rug is worked with 5 strands of yarn held tog throughout, 2 strands of A + 2 strands of B + 1 strand of C.

2. Length of "grass" is controlled by the length of the loop sts. Make the loop sts as long or as short as desired. If you make very long loops, additional yarn may be required.

3. When working loop sts, hold the working yarn with the fingers or thumb of the hand holding the hook. You may find it comfortable to hold the loop between the thumb or fingers and the hook.

THE ACTUAL RUG PATTERN:

With 2 strands A, 2 strands B, and 1 strand C held tog, ch 26.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across – 25 sc.

Row 2 (Right Side): Ch 1, turn, Front Loop st in each st across.

Row 3: Ch 1, turn, Back Loop st in each st across.

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures about 30 in. (76 cm) from beginning. Fasten off.

 

FINISHING

Weave in ends. Cut loops. Trim to make rug look like grass.

    GREAT.

    I can already see that version of it. PLEASE do send us a picture when finished will you, together with a description of which yarn you’ve used.

    I actually saw this being able to transform into a happy child room rug… and kitchen rug and funk rug for the porch… oh wherever.

  7. Fine Craft Guild says:

    Check out the latest article on our blog:… it’s a tutorial to make a crochet bag that teaches you HOW TO CROCHET. It’s ideal. Cant get a better explanation than that!

  8. Fun project! Thanks for sharing on Modern Craftswoman Monday! Rory, ToolsAreForWomenToo!

  9. Kaitlin says:

    Hi!
    I am a little confused on how to make the grass effect. You say cut the loops but I’m a little confused on which loops to cut! I LOVE this and it would be great if someone could give me some help :)
    I’m a fairly new crocheter but loving it so far!
    Thanks :)

    Oh. My…. NEVER once in my life have I desired to crochet something…. until NOW. Due to my love of grass. I know that I won’t be making this… but at least now I am considering crocheting as a hobby…. that’s a HUGE step, people!

    Thanks!

    Angie

  11. I can’t believe how badly I want to stick my feet into that. I totally love it!! I would never have guessed there were three different colors at first glance. Thanks so much for the tutorial! Have a wonderful summer!
    XOXO,
    Andy

  12. I LOVE these soft, lovely crochet rugs. I need to try this one! when I have the TIME!

    Thank you for sharing this pattern.

  13. Janette says:

    Hi, I really want to crochet this rug but I can’t figure out how to draw up a loop and leave it in front of the work and draw up another loop. do I leave three long loops or one long loop in front of the work and draw through three loops (long or one long and two regular) is there a video somewhere to show me this….I’be been looking for hours….Janette, thanks in advance

  14. Fine Craft Guild says:

    Hi Janette,
    Welcome to my world of ‘figuring things out’. I talked to some people who actually made this rug and LOVED the pattern. This is what they said: “The back loop needs to be reworded, because if you do it as it appears in the pattern, the loops can come undone. You have to switch the loops (that you will cut) from the hook hand to the other hand for the last stitch (the one that ties it all into place). If you take it slow and do it as you read, it its easy. ”
    Hope this helps!

  15. Karen Wolters says:

    Is there any way to post a youtube video on this for those of us who need to see it being done? I can’t read it and get it.

  16. Fine Craft Guild says:

    I’ll think about making a video. That’s a great idea, as well as a lot of work.

  17. I have purchased all the materials for this super-cool grass rug but am having trouble getting started….I need more specific directions, not being an avid crocheter. A video would be awesome! What are the large-eyed needles for? I cannot figure out from your directions where they are used. Help!

  18. Mallory Haas says:

    I am wondering, if you cut the loops after, will they not start to fray ? Should you burns the ends with a creme brulee torch? Any ideas?

    I really want to make a grass like rug, the ones that look real are so very expensive… any other craft thoughts?
