Overview

This set of seven kid’s rugs showcases bright colors and playful animal designs. Worked with Deborah Norville soft worsted-weight yarn in Everyday Solids, the rugs can be used as cozy playmats for a baby or easy-to-wash floor mats for an older child’s bathroom. The main section of each rug is worked with a large size N/9.00 mm hook and two strands of yarn. Double strands create a thicker final project and work up quickly. Crochet motifs are then worked with one strand and a smaller hook and sewn on to add detail and decoration. Rugs include Baby Elephant, Give a Hoot Owl, Sammy the Stegosaurus, Bella Butterfly, Granny Shell Turtle, Spots the Ladybug, and Mischevious Monkey.
