How cool is this grass crochet rug? It’s Perrrfect for your own home. I love it as a kitchen mat and as a bathroom rug in my own place — albeit that I’ll make the bathroom version grey instead of green. Or, make this as a gift for someone. I particularly like it as a housewarming gift or a Fathers day gift. Lion Brand is the designer of this modern rug. I can see it in so many settings. Can you?
The free crochet pattern for this rug / mat measures about 22 x 30” or 56 x 76 cm. However, you can of course adjust the length and the width of it to suit your needs.
A Note on Color
While it looks like it’s made with just one color green, it’s actually consists of three shades, which lends it that natural look. While I personally like the grass look of it, making it into a perfect doormat in front of French doors leading to a garden or porch, this rug will look good in many different colors. Pink, fuchsia and red? Three color sand? White, plus two off-whites?

Crochet Hook – Size S-35 ‘Speed Hook’
Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)
9 loops = 8 in. (20.5 cm) in pattern with 5 strands of yarn held tog. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. 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. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
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.
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.
