Crochet Grass Rug Reviewed by Mary Squiers on 2013-07-11 *
I would give this rug the lowest possible rating because the directions are incomprehensible. There is a stitch called a back look stitch that makes a locked stitch on the back of the work. That stitch is not what seems to be described in the sedirections. There is no front loop stitch that I could find, either in my own books or online. The directions here for the front loop stitch are very weird. It all looks totally made up by someone who really doesn't know much about crochet. I took the advice of another reviewer here and wrote to LB to explain the problem understanding the directions; I received a very short and equally incomprehensible response. So, what I did instead was make my own. I used the tried and true back loop stitch and made an oval rug instead of square so that I could move in one continuous line and have each stitch create a loop on the back. Here is my new bath mat. It is about 25 x 19 plus a bit more for all the shag. I used just about the amount of yarn this pattern calls for. If you do not know how to do the stitch, it is on YouTube. There were many I looked at--one that was straightforward and clear was planetjane.com. (I think that was the name--I do not have any relationship with this site.) Anyway, you may want to try to make an oval rug with 5 strands of yarn as suggested here, and using a back loop stitch throughout. Good luck. I hate to appear to be going out of my way to respond here and then complain. But, this is not the first pattern that I have come across from LB that does not work as it says it should or that is poorly drafted. The email response to my question was really the last straw. But, I do like my new bath mat--I hope it can stand the wear and tear--I would be more confident if I were just using it as a throw in an out of the way place where it wouldn't get too dirty!

Very fun to make and its fairly quick. The words for the pattern on how to do the loops are kinda confusing and the back loop needs to be reworded because if you do it how they do it they can come undone. I did a practice piece before making the full rug and you have to switch the loops (that you will cut) from the hook hand to the other hand for the last stich (the one that ties it all into place). But if you take it slow and do it as you read it its easy. I made a bigger one than what the pattern called for and I am making little ones for my boys.

saving up my scraps to make this; seems cozy and it's nifty the way you put the easter egg pattern on it. clever idea. would be nice to add a few flowers and such; good play mat.

I cannot wait to try this. After looking for new bath rugs for a year, I've decided to make these. I'll put something that will keep them from slipping on the back and may cut the grass shorter but they look so fun!!!!!

Great pattern. Had a little trouble understanding the type of loop stitch in this pattern, but after an email to Lion Brand it was explained in more detail.
I'm working on my rug now and plan to make more.
