Free Mug Rug Patterns to Crochet

Mug rugs are one of the cutest stitching items I’ve made.  They are so fun, quick, and easy to make that there is such a big bang for your buck. Mug rugs make great gifts.

They make the cutest homemade accessories and could be the perfect housewarming gift in a small basket with homemade dish towels. What is there not to love about mug rugs?

This page is chock-full of crochet mug rug patterns. For those who want to learn to crochet, crochet mug rugs are the best little projects to start on.  They are also fun for the seasoned crocheter because they can be whipped up very quickly.

Personally, my mug rugs have been quilted mug rugs lately.  Quilting is my thing, and if it’s your’s too, be sure to check out our page full of free quilted mug rug patterns.

What is a mug rug?

A mug rug is like a coaster for an end table or coffee table, only it is larger.  It’s large enough for a mug with room for a spoon or a snack. They sit neatly where a coaster would be to cover and protect furniture from rings.

Not only can mug rugs be crocheted, they can be quilted and it is possible to knit mug rugs! Our free knit mug rug pattern page is a must-see for those who enjoy knitting.

For crochet mug rugs and knitted mug rugs, it is important to use cotton yarn.  This is much more absorbent than other kinds of yarns, is easy to work with, and washes up nicely when the mug rug needs a quick cleaning.

The crochet mug rug patterns below include those that would compliment a farmhouse decor, a rustic decor, a summery beach theme, and so much more.

If tapestry crochet or mosaic crochet is something that one would like to learn, there are several patterns that teach these creative and special design crochet techniques.  What better way to learn than with a small mug rug?

Scroll down and take a peek at the wide variety of crochet mug rug patterns below. There is surely one to grab your attention.  

Watch out!  They are addictive!
