It’s finally here. The final mug rug pattern design. This is actually the design that started the whole mug rug series idea. I really think I’ve saved the best for last. Monogramed mug rugs!! I mean who doesn’t love a good monogram item!!
Don’t worry if you missed the previous designs, here they are:
Medium #4 Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn
(I used Peaches and Cream )
4 ¼ “ square
*Measurement does not include fringe*
18 sc and 16 rows = 4in.
sc – single crochet
ch – chain
st – stitch
(RS) – right side
(WS) – wrong side
This pattern is written in US terms.
Starting chain does not count as a stitch
After completing the first row, I like to mark the right side with a stitch marker (or a safety pin). This helped me to easily keep track of which side was which as I was working through the pattern.
When changing colors, keep the loose ends and dropped strands to the wrong side of your mug rug, it will help keep the right side nice and neat. (This is where the stitch marker was helpful!)
Mug Rug Instructions:
Row 1: (RS) Sc in 2nd ch from the hook. Sc in each st across. (15 st)
Row 2-17: Ch 1, sc in each st across changing colors as needed to follow the design.
Finish off and sew in ends.

Adding the Fringe (Optional):
Cut 36 (4-5 inch) strands of yarn
Use 2 strands of yarn for each fringe. There will be a total of 9 fringes on each side.
To add the fringe— insert hook from the back to the front.
Wrap the two strands around the hook and pull through.
Pull ends through the loop and pull tight.
Once you’ve added the entire fringe, trim to your desired length. (I trimmed mine to about 1”)
