Alcira Rug

ORIGINAL PATTERN

Hi again! Like I said last week, today I bring a Mother’s Day gift. It doesn’t matter if you want to give this as a gift to yourself or to someone special, it will be perfect.

crochet pattern rug

This “Alcira Rug” it’s done with Super Bulky yarn (I chose Katia’s Big Ribbon) and a 9 mm (M13) hook. Though it’s named like this, the pattern is not just a rug but it can be used as a centerpiece, over a side table, or in any way you prefer!

This is the first of three rug patterns I made as a gift for my aunts (the patterns are named after them) and I will share them throughout May (Part 2 “Cele Rug”, Part 3 “Betty Rug”). I must say this is the first time I design a more complex pattern (intermediate skill level) so I will be available for questions or comments about it.

Another thing you can’t forget it’s that this rug must be wet-blocked after finishing it to achieve the correct shape.

So, without further ado, this is the pattern:
