This Crochet Mat Is Great For Beginners
This whole mat uses just single crochets, which means it’s a perfect pattern for a beginner crocheter to try. If you can single crochet then this you can make this mat. I wrote all about single crochets in a previous post if you’d like a reminder of the how to’s of the stitch.
The Yarn You’ll Want To Use For This Bath Mat!
For this bath mat pattern I used THREE different kinds of yarn. I decided to go with the three I chose because I wanted this mat to be extra cozy. The yarn I picked was Feels Like Butta in White & Pale Grey as well as Terry Spun in Ice which are all from Lion Brand Yarn (my favorite yarn company)!
I had previously used Feels Like Butta for my pretty in pink scarf and a baby blanket chevron design so I knew that it would be amazingly soft crocheted into a bathmat. The Terry Spun yarn almost gives the mat a fleece like fuzzy feel, which is perfect for your feet.
How to Crochet a Fuzzy BathMat
To get the fuzzy feel of a bath rug, I used three different types of yarn (I mentioned that before) and held them all together at the same time. So I crocheted single crochets while holding all THREE skeins of yarn together at once. This technique is super easy to achieve, and you crochet like usual, but it almost feels like you are using a bulky yarn because of how many skeins you are holding. Take peek a the picture below to see what I mean.
Add a Grip to the bottom so it makes it a non slip bath mat!
To make my bathmat non-slip, I added some grip liner I got from the dollar store! I cut off long rectangular pieces and sewed them to the bottom of the mat using a large yarn needle and some yarn. This part is optional, but I feel like it would be beneficial to add this for safety.
