Crochet Grass Rug

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky - Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

9 loops = 8 in. (20.5 cm) in pattern with 5 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:

Front Loop Stitch: Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in front of work as follows: Bring working yarn to the front; hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook. Leaving a loop of yarn in the front, bring working yarn to back of work. Insert hook in same st and draw up a loop – 3 loops on hook. Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.
Back Loop Stitch: Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in back of work as follows: Working yarn should be at back of work, hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook. Leaving a loop of yarn in the back, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop – 3 loops on hook. Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.

NOTES:

1. Rug is worked with 5 strands of yarn held tog throughout, 2 strands of A + 2 strands of B + 1 strand of C.
2. Length of "grass" is controlled by the length of the loop sts. Make the loop sts as long or as short as desired. If you make very long loops, additional yarn may be required.
3. When working loop sts, hold the working yarn with the fingers or thumb of the hand holding the hook. You may find it comfortable to hold the loop between the thumb or fingers and the hook.


RUG
With 2 strands A, 2 strands B, and 1 strand C held tog, ch 26.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across – 25 sc.
Row 2 (Right Side): Ch 1, turn, Front Loop st in each st across.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, Back Loop st in each st across.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures about 30 in. (76 cm) from beginning. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends. Cut loops. Trim to make rug look like grass.

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!
