Hooking in Spades Mug Rug Crochet Pattern
Why make a massive crochet mug rug pattern? I love big mugs. I always find that if I have a coffee in a ‘regular’ sized mug that I get to the end and haven’t had quite enough coffee yet. I also buy a lot of mugs, my kids think I’m crazy but I like the ones with cute or sassy sayings and I get them as the mood takes me while I’m out doing the food shop generally.
I got a huge mug at Christmas which doesn’t really fit on the coaster I have on my desk, and while I was working on the House of Cards Blanket pattern I realised I needed a lot more informational content to include in the pattern than I usually do and decided to make a mosaic crochet mug rug out of one of the cards to help my brain work through the informational content and stop me from balancing my mug on the edge of the pile of patterns on my desk!

To make my Aces mug rug pattern I used a familiar favourite from my shelf, Paintbox Simply Aran Cotton in Pansy Purple and Paper White – gotta stay on brand, but also that’s what’s on my shelf! Paintbox Cotton Aran comes in 50g 100% Cotton balls and a range of 64 shades. Machine washable and holds up well, you can find out more about Paintbox Cotton Yarns in the review post here.

Once you have completed all your rows, secure the ends of each row by pulling gently to tighten the knots at each end. Repeat on the opposite side of your mosaic crochet mug rug.
Then, tie two strands together in a further knot and repeat this until you have completed both sides of your mug rug. Then trim the ends until they approximately 1 inch in length. If you want to straighten the edges out a quick blast of steam from an iron should do the trick!
