CHRISTMAS RUG, CHAIR SEAT OR DOILY. Easy crochet tutorial pattern instant download -- Olga Andrew Designs Pattern 038
This is a step-by-step tutorial pattern for hand crocheted Christmas colours circle, which can be used as rug, chair seat, thick doily, tea-cloth, coaster, place mat, hot plate or pot holder. (For photo No 5 I used a beautiful Christine Purdy’s handmade pottery). The pattern can be made up with any yarn. The instructions have been tested on several types of yarn and thread. If you use different yarn brand or type, use an average hook size between the smallest and largest on the yarn label. Variations and experimentations are unlimited!
The pattern includes detailed photos with instructions how to make it -- useful for beginners. This pattern uses only basic stitches, so beginners should have no problem with it. It is written in English using Standard US crochet terminology (with UK crochet terminology if necessary).
Skill level: easy (you only need basic crochet skills).
Materials you will need: 1) crochet yarn (I used Premium Acrylic DK yarn) snow-white (approx. 70 g), red (approx. 20 g), dark green (approx. 40 g). Total weight is 130 g. 2) crochet hook (I used hook size 7 mm).
The approximate diameter of the crocheted rug, chair seat or doily is about 38-39 cm (about 14-15 inch). The size of the circle may vary depending on the type of yarn, hook size and how tightly you crochet.
