So this was my very first contributor blog post pattern for Palerosecrochet.com and I realised I hadn't yet shared it here with you yet!!

UPDATED 24/7/17: Sadly Palerosecrochet.com now no longer exits... but you can now get the free crochet pattern for this project here at sfmgs.co.uk by clicking here! ←←←


This is one of my favourite makes EVER! I completely and utterly LOVED making this rug and every time I walk on it or look at it I still get all the good feels! 

This style of mandala doily rug or mat, is usually made using upholstery rope or cord and that can be expensive! As we are saving up for #PROJECTLIVEABOARD, it's all about saving the pennies without scrimping on the quality! 

This rug is made using a 10 mm hook, a ball of Aran weight yarn and ALL your gorgeous multi-coloured scrap yarns to make your very own chunky Unicorn yarn!

Working 4 strands at once means you get beautiful colour variations throughout your work and a super soft and spongy weave. 


This free doily mandala rug pattern incorporates 14 rounds of puff stitch, loops, chains and clusters of tc's (US dc).
