Shaker-Inspired Rug

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton - Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

9 dc + 8 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] with 2 strands of yarn held tog. 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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st, and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES:

  1. To change color, work last stitch to the point where there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over with new color to complete stitch.
  2. Always ch 3 at beg of every WS row, and ch 2 at beg of every RS row. This helps shape a slight curve, making it easier to coil the strip.
  3. Use 2 strands of yarn held tog throughout.

COLOR AND ROW SEQUENCE

Change colors in the following color sequence: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, J, K, L.

At the same time, change colors in the following row sequence: 2 rows, 3 rows, 5 rows, 8 rows for a repeat of 18 rows.

RUG
With 2 strands of held tog, ch 3.
Row 1(RS): Dc in 3rd ch from hook.
Row 2 (WS): Ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout), turn, dc in next dc; drop both strands of and change to 2 strands of B held tog – 2 dc.
Row 3 (RS): With B, ch 2 (counts as dc here and throughout), turn, dc in first dc (inc made), dc in next dc – 3 dc.
Row 4: Ch 3, turn, dc in first dc (inc made) and in each dc across – 4 dc.
Row 5: Ch 2, turn, dc in first dc and in each dc across; drop both strands of B and change to 2 strands of C held tog – 5 dc.
Row 6: With C, ch 3, turn, dc in first dc and in each dc across – 6 dc.
Row 7: Ch 2, turn, dc in first dc and in each dc across – 7 dc.
Rows 8 and 9: Rep Rows 6 and 7 – 9 dc.
Row 10: Ch 3, turn, dc in each dc across; drop both strands of C and change to 2 strands of D held tog – 9 dc.
Rep Row 10 and continue in Color and Sequence until 18-row repeat has been worked 23 times. 10 and continue in Color and Sequence for 11 more rows, end with a RS row.
Next Row (WS): Continue in Color and Sequence, ch 3, turn, dc in each dc across to last 2 sts, dc2tog – 8 sts.
Next Row (RS): Continue in Color and Row Sequence, ch 2, turn, dc2tog, dc in each dc across – 7 sts.
Rep last 2 rows until 1 st remains. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Working on a flat surface and starting at the beginning of Strip, coil Strip into a circle. Ch-2 edge should be on the inside of spiral and ch-3 should be along the outside edge. To ensure piece lays flat, do not pull Strip too tightly. Sew adjoining edges of Strip together as you work.

Edging

With 2 strands of yarn held tog and changing colors about every 13 rows of strip, join yarn along edge of Rug and work 1 row of reverse single crochet around the entire outside edge of Rug; join with slip stitch in first st. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Shaker-Inspired Rug Reviewed by Elizabeth Martin on 2012-10-17 *
Was highly disappointed in this pattern. Began to put it together and no matter what I did, I could not get the rug to lay flat. And upon further inspection of the picture provided, Lion Brand couldn't get it to lay flat either. Very disappointing to find out after doing all of that work.
