The Biscuit Rug is a super easy, super quick Rug to crochet. This pattern uses only single crochet with a super bulky yarn and cats love it once it’s done!
This pattern is part of the Christmas in July Make-A-Long hosted by Marie of Underground Crafter. This make-a-long features 27 designers and 31 projects! We are almost to the end of the make-a-long but you can still catch up on the projects or save them for later by heading to the main post here or click the image below. You’ll want to check it out because along will all the amazing projects there’s also some great prizes up for grabs. Thanks Marie for hosting!
Each week for the make-a-long we had a theme for our projects and this week it’s pets! Last month I released my Biscuit Blanket. The whole project was a bit of a fluke because I designed something using yarn my 13 year old daughter picked out. The funny thing is the cats LOVED the blanket so I decided to make a mini version just for the cats. The Biscuit Rug is the purrfect (hehe) gift for you cat or loved one’s cat and I love how quick it works up. So if you need a last minute gift this will work great!
This rug uses Fable Fur from We Crochet which is a super bulky, super fuzzy yarn. Like I said this rug works up in a flash. I knew the cats would go nuts for it so even though I finished pretty quick I waited until the perfect time to try to get photos. And just like I thought, as soon as I put the rug down both Cow (black and white) and Nugget (orange) came to check it out.
In the end Nugget won, made some biscuits and passed out. Cow was pretty jealous so looks like I’ll need to make a second for her.
