The Addison Mug Rug Crochet Pattern

Hey Guys!

I’m back and with another beautiful crochet mug rug pattern. Mug rugs seem to be the only project I want to make these days and the Addison Mug Rug is no exception. But who could blame me, they are so fun and easy to make!

They make the cutest home decor accessories and would be such a fun little house warming gift. They would be perfect to stick in a little welcome basket with some handmade dish cloths!

I hope everyone loves and enjoys the pattern. Happy Crocheting!

Yarn Choice

For all of my mug rug patterns I use cotton yarn. Using cotton yarn makes the mug rug super functional because it tends to soak up moisture better than an acrylic yarn. Cotton yarn also gives beautiful definition to the mug rugs and enhances the texture and details. I’m really not a brand snob when it comes to cotton yarn. I usually use Lily Sugar n’ Cream 100% Cotton, but any cotton yarn would work just fine. If you would like to use the yarn I used click here!

Attaching the Fringe

  • To create the fringe, cut 6 inch pieces of yarn in the color used for the mug rug. You will need 3 strands of yarn to complete 1 fringe.

To attach the fringe, take 3 strands of yarn. Use your crochet hook and push the hook through the far left foundation ch or sc st on either side of the mug rug. Fold the 3 strands of yarn in half and loop the middle of the strands onto the crochet hook and pull the loop of strands through the st about 2 inches.

Fold the ends of the strands through the loop.

Tighten to create the fringe.

Repeat for every other foundation chain (or single crochet) on both sides of the mug rug.

To finish off the mug rug, trim the fringe so it measures roughly an inch to an inch and a half (depending on your preference of length).

    I love making mug rugs to try new stitches. I’ve never worked into the hdc like that before. This is the only cotton yarn I use and like you mentioned it has great stitch definition. Thanks for the pattern!

  • Marlene

    I just finished crocheting 2 of the mug rugs which turned out very nice. I always use cotton yarn because of its definition. I will be making more. Thanks for the pattern.

  • Amy

    This is a super cute pattern. A video of how to sc in the third look of the hdc would be helpful for those (like me) who are still learning to read patterns.

  • Judith

    This was a great pattern that was fun and easy to follow. I have a question about the row where we crochet into the third loop – do you do a sc in the first and last stitch in that row to keep the ends straight? My edges got a little wonky on those rows. When I look at your photo, I only count 15 stitches, so I’m wondering if the other two are sc.

  • Sherry

    Thank you so much for the pattern. My friends love their new Coffee Rugs! By the way, is the pattern to that beautiful headpiece you’re wearing in the photo available?
