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.

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.
