Caffè Mug Rug Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

What better way to stay warm and cozy at home with a cup of tea or coffee? This mug rug crochet pattern features an extension just for your spoon, or tea bag.

Crochet this rectangle coaster for your coffee cup and spoon, so you can keep your table clean. The different areas are divided up with a little texture for fun.

I love how this mug rug coaster turned out in variegated yarn. Of course, it would look fabulous in a solid too.

To get those little texture bumps, we’ll alternate working treble crochet stitches with single crochets. These treble stitch rows are in between about 4″ of single crochet space for the mug, and 2″ for the spoon area.

The Grana Washcloth pattern features one of my favorite crochet stitches for cleaning cloths – the grit stitch which makes a great texture.

These nesting baskets include 3 sizes and are so useful for containing the clutter, well of the little things.

And if you’re looking for a traditional coaster, the Juliet Coasters are my fav – simple and beautiful!

Materials

  • #4 medium worsted weight yarn, pictured in Big Twist (85% cotton, 15% polyester, 96 yd / 88 m; 1.94 oz / 55 g), color: pewter (1) ball or 35 yd per mug rug.
  • 5mm US size H hook
  • Yarn needle, scissors, measuring tape

Gauge

4″ / 10 cm x 4″ / 10 cm = 16 sts x 17 rows of sc

Stitches/Abbreviations (US Terms)

You can click on any of these links for a step by step tutorial on how to crochet these stitches.

ch(s) – chain(s)           r

rep – repeat 

sc – single crochet 

sk – skip the indicated stitch 

st(s) – stitch(es)

tr – treble stitch

WS – wrong side

Notes

  1. The stitch multiple for this pattern is an odd number, plus 1 for the starting chain.
  2. Ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a st.

Finished Size

Once complete, the finished size of this mug rug is 8″/20 cm x 4.25″/10.75 cm. This includes the simple single crochet border.

Adjustments

If you would like to make a mug rug that’s wider, just keep an odd number stitches and then add 1 for the starting chain.

You can easily vary the number of rows between the treble bump sections to make them longer or shorter. Just be sure to work the treble stitches on the wrong side so they will pop on the right side.
