About this Pattern

When you need a more custom accent rug in your room, our basket weave crochet rug is the way to go. It’s comfortable to walk on and if you use the yarn we recommend, it’s safe to toss in the washer and dryer when it gets dirty.

With this project you’ll get to practice crocheting post stitches which are used to create the basket weave texture. It’s a breeze to memorize once you find a rhythm so you can really enjoy the process.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you will need to get started as well as a video tutorial demonstrating how to crochet the basket weave crochet rug and written instructions to complete this project from start to finish.

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
