Cutting a Mug Rug

Happy May friends! Where did April go? Must have been all the fun I’m having at home making things like the Pretty in Gingham Mug Rug that I just missed that last 2 weeks of April. *shrug emoji*

Anyway, on to this week’s design! So, this week’s design is a new one in the ever expanding Pretty in Gingham line. I saw a photo of some mug rugs come through my Instagram feed and I loved the way they looked so I immediately made a set myself. So, I looked at which designs I could adapt and came back with this design. Don’t you love it?

This pattern is super easy and I really hope you like it. It’s nice to add a bit of color and style for a living room. And they’re useful. I’ve been using mine for my cups for a while now and I must say I really like that they’re so long, gives you a lot of space if you miss putting your cup down the first time. Not to mention, so easy to clean when you spill (which I totally do, a lot).

Don’t forget to share photos of this pattern on social media with the hashtag #DivineDebris so I can see them! See ya next week

Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by WeCrochet for the purposes of making this design, with compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, it’s a great cotton yarn I will be using again.
