Crochet Pattern: Colorful Rainbow Mug Rug My Latest #Crochet Writing

This is my latest blog post for Crochet Spot! Read the whole article on

I could not stop with just one Mug Rug pattern, especially with the merry month of June upon us. Show your pride and/or love of diversity this summer with this versatile Colorful Rainbow Mug Rug! I made mine using (some of) a jumbo package of embroidery floss. Each color used just over one 10-yard skein of floss held double (two strands of floss held together while crocheting), meaning each stripe used the length of about 5.5 yards as held double, or about 11 yards total. These stripes could be changed to any colors to suit your mood. The cotton floss held double ended up being about the weight of a sock yarn.

Skill Level:
Finished Size: 4.25″ (11 cm) wide, 7″ (18 cm) tall
Lace Weight Yarn (held double) (approximately 11 yards of each color)
Crochet Hook D (3.25 mm)
crochet yarn size 4
