Crochet Rug Pattern (Diamonds Scatter Rug)
I LOVE this rug, and had so much fun designing it! As a crocheter, you were likely drawn to it because of the complex diamond design and the use of multiple colors. You recognize that these effects are not easy to achieve in crochet -- especially all together in one project -- but this rug is actually quite easy to make. It utilizes a simple technique I developed called Reversible Image Crochet. This technique eliminates multiple ends (that need to be sewn in) and carrying multiple strands of yarn. It also gives you clear images that are identical (in opposing colors) on both sides of your work! That’s right, this rug is completely reversible! I hope you will give crocheting it a try. I taught this Reversible Image Crochet technique recently, at the Creative Festival in Toronto, and the feedback from my students was really, really positive.
This KnotYourselfOut crochet rug pattern is named: DIAMONDS SCATTER RUG.
I used cotton to make this rug. It would look stunning in any bathroom, and as you can see from the photos, it really “pops” when placed on a hard wood floor. I also think it would be ideal in a cottage setting or in a child's room.
This pattern provides instructions to crochet a rug that measures approximately 24.5” wide and 36.5” long.
This crochet rug pattern is suitable for an intermediate crocheter. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. I am confident it will make for a happy crochet experience.
I am available to answer questions, should you have any.
Thanks for stopping by.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
