Pattern Notes

  • Find the yarn featured in this pattern here.

  • If you’ve chosen to use the recommended yarn, I advise you to pull from the outside end of the skein. This will minimize twisting!

  • The ch 2 at the beginning of each row/round does not count as a stitch.

  • When completed, this rug is 38 inches wide and 17 inches deep.
