Hi! BOO!
How are you this week? Are you feelin’ the Fall vibes yet? I’m so happy for it to finally be September and Fall-O-Ween season (it’s Fall and Halloween decoration time, ha!). The last couple weeks were acorns but this week it’s all about a Halloween design, sort of. I have always wanted to make a doormat, especially once I started making tapestry designs, and when I was at Lowe’s recently I saw their jute twines and finally went for it. I love the way it turned out, it’s awesome and I can’t wait for someone to right the doorbell… but it was hard on my hands to work with the twine. It made me really appreciate the yarn when I went back to working on another Fall-O-Ween design. I really hope you all like this design and find the humor in it, because it’s supposed to be received as funny not mean.

Materials

  • US J (6.00 mm) crochet hook

  • Plasti Dip (optional)

    Ravelry link

Terms/stitches used

  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in 2 sections – the main body, where the words are, and then the border.
  • This pattern is worked back and forth, with a turn at the end or the beginning of the row, during the first section and then in the round with a slip st into the first st from the last st.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • You can replace the chain row (row 1) with a foundation single crochet row.
  • Color A is tan and color B is green in the photos.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out this helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Every stitch in this pattern is a single crochet. The directions for the sides portion (where the graphing is) will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many stitches to make.
  • I sprayed the back of this rug with Plasti Dip to make it less slippery. It took a couple coats and it worked really well.

– Finishing –
You might need to block this a little bit or just not worry about it, because it is a doormat. I did a couple coats of Plasti Dip to make the back of the mat slip resistant and it helped to flatten and straighten it out.

So there it is. I hope you like this pattern and give it a shot some time. 😀

See ya next week.
