Retro Doily Rug

Retro Doily Rug Pattern Update

What a fun project I had in the works this month! My Retro Doily Rug has a fresh new look after the recent pattern update. This was actually my first time using 100% cotton yarn for an area rug, and I am absolutely in love with the final result. To make this rug, I used Dishie cones by KnitPicks, which was super easy to crochet while holding multiple strands together. The latest version of this design has recently been tested, edited, and released as an individual pattern…so it’s no longer a part of my Owl Rug.

Retro Doily Rug is made using 3 strands of yarn from the same cone, it’s a great technique described in this post – Long Chain Method.  You will only need 3 cones of Dishie yarn (1 of each color) or 4 Dishie skeins instead of each cone. 

  • Dishie 400g Cones – 3 cones total, (1 of each color – Creme Brulé, Silver , Swan)
  • Dishie 100g Skeins – 12 skeins total (4 of each color – choose any 3 color you like)
