Today's tutorial is dedicated to decorating your home, today we are going to learn how to weave modern crochet rugs that will give a cozy air to your home. The rugs are a classic work for the crochet technique and there are an infinity of models that range from the very simple, which only use a couple of stitches, to complex and stitched designs, which interspersed several stitches one and creating designs that remind us a bit in the baroque style.
The designs that we bring for you today are designed to give a new twist to those patterns, to start our first proposal is that you start using different materials, such as cloth to give them another use, such as rugs or using thick yarn you can review patterns of square rugs for crocheted bedside ideas.
BLACK AND WHITE CROCHET MATS The next model that I propose to knit modern crochet doilies is a cute and simple color design. Nowadays the two-color design is used to beautify different areas of the house, because it can give a feeling of depth. This time we present the pattern of a very simple motif, which you are going to knit in black and white, but you can choose a motif pattern that you like and knit in black and white.
For this doily you will use 50 grams of white cotton yarn, 50 grams of black cotton yarn, crochet number 6. To start, either in black or white, knit 4 chains and close with a half point, in al first round knit 1 chain, then knit 1 single crochet and 4 chains 4 times, on the second round knit 3 single crochets, 4 chains and repeat until the end of the round, on row 4 knit 3 single crochets, 1 popcorn stitch (knit 5 Double crochets and close them together with 1 yarn over and 1 chain stitch), 3 single crochets, 4 chain stitches until the round is finished.
On rounds 5 to 30 work the following pattern, 2 single crochets, 5 popcorn stitches, 2 single crochets and 4 chains. For round 31, knit a border around the four sides, with 3 chains instead of the first popcorn stitch, 2 chain stitches. So you finish this motif, you only need to knit 5 black squares and 8 white squares, then join them diagonally.
These modern crochet doilies can also make great table runners, like the one in the photo below. This model is also knitted by joining several square motifs, mounting 12 chains and then knitting a combination of treble crochets and chains in the first 6 chains and in the rest only treble crochets, for six rounds and then inverting the pattern for the other 6 rounds, This makes a 12 x 12 square.
MODERN CROCHET MATS The following model is designed to decorate a very large area, for example a bed or even the floor. If you decide to knit it as a bedspread you can use any material, but if you want to knit especially for the floor you have to use a particularly resistant thread that can withstand the constant rose with footwear, for example you can use nylon or polyester materials and especially very thick.
Start with about 6 chains with which you will form a circle, then knit 3 chains in the air and two double crochets, continue with 3 chains in the air. Thus knit another three groups of treble crochets and chain until closing the circle, on the next round knit 3 treble crochets on the chains, continue with this sequence until completing 5 rounds for rounds 6 and 7, knit only double treble crochets around the mat. If you want, you can finish off with an edge of single crochets and knots.
