Cottage Rug ,CAL

Cottage rug, crochet rug
(Go to Norwegian pattern / gå til norsk oppskrift)
During my Easter holiday, I made a crochet rug for my daughter, and I wish to share the pattern with you in this mini-CAL. The pattern will be released in four parts over two weeks. I will post the pattern here on my blog, and you will find the dates further down.


The pattern is free during the CAL, but you will also be able to download the complete pattern for free on Ravelry.com for a period of time, once the CAL is finished.

Hope you'll join me, and please share your pictures with me ♥
You can find me on Facebook; Hverdagsmagi, and Instagram; @hverdagsmagi

Edit April 4th. I've also created a Facebook Group for my CAL's and patterns. Feel free to join for updates, help from me or other group members and to share pictures of your work; Hverdagsmagi Crochet Along



April 3rd (at 5 PM CET, approx): Miscellaneous remarks 

Materials:

♥ 16 - 20 skeins of Drops Paris
♥ 6 mm crochet hook
♥ Yarn needle
♥ Scissors

Yarn info: 

The amount of yarn needed depends on whether you would like to make the rug in a single color or with color change. If you're making the rug in a single color, you'll need 16 skeins of Paris. If you decide to use multiple colors you may need more yarn, depending on how many rows you crochet in each color.

I used three different colors for my rug, and I needed 18 skeins.
  • Spray blue 102, 2 skeins
  • Powder pink 58, 8 skeins
  • Off white 17, 8 skeins (I barley had any yarn left in this color, so to be on the safe side I would have bought 9 or 10 skeins)

Gauge: 

10 x 10 cm = 12 dc x 6 rows

Crochet terms:

US-terms

Measurements:

About 96 cm in diameter

Important Notes:

If you start a round with a dc, the first dc is replaced by ch3 or a Faux double crochet.
At the end of the round, ss in the 3rd ch, if you replaced the 1st dc with ch3.

Abbreviations: 

st = stitch
ch = chain
ss = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet 2dc-cl = 2 double crochet cluster
ch-sp = chain space
rnd(s) = round(s)

2 Double crochet cluster
1. Yarn over and insert hook into stitch. Yarn over and draw through the stitch. 
2. Yarn over and draw through the first two loops on your crochet hook. You now have two loops on your crochet hook.
3. Yarn over and insert hook into the same stitch. Yarn over and draw through the stitch. 
4. Yarn over and draw through the first two loops on your crochet hook. You should now have three loops on your crochet hook. 
5. Yarn over and draw through the three remaining loops on your crochet hook.

    Part 4, April 21st

    Ch2, make a ss by inserting your hook trough the front loop and the top side loop of the last dc, yarn over and pull trough all 3 loops on your hook.

  29. Ch1 = 1 sc, skip 2 dc, (3 dc, ch2, 1 ss trough the front loop and the top side loop of the last dc, 2 dc) in next dc, skip 2 dc, *1 sc in next dc, skip 2 dc, (3 dc, ch2, 1 ss trough the front loop and the top side loop of the last dc, 2 dc) in next dc, skip 2 dc* repeat from *-* around, finish with 1 ss in 1st ch (sc) (56 shells)

  1. At the very last row in Part 3 shouldn't it say skip 7 dc?
