Mellow Yellow Rug free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Mellow Yellow Rug
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Many years ago I was in need of a rug at the foot of my sink, so I crocheted one. I love that rug! I’ve been meaning to write the pattern down, and now I finally have. It brightens up the kitchen, adds some padding in front of the sink and absorbs the water that gets splashed when the kids decide to help. I hope you enjoy your Mellow Yellow Rug as much as I’ve enjoyed mine.

    Jessie, I love the look of this rug, and plan to make this asap. Do you use a pad or something underneath it to keep it from slipping on your kitchen floor?

      I didn’t use anything under it, but you can use a non slip pad for extra safety.
