CHUNKY 8 PETAL FLOWER BATH MAT INSIDE CROCHET RUG PATTERN INFO

As l couldn't work on the new craft room rug..total frustration...l decided to make a new bath mat using the same 8 petal flower

mix 6 strands of DK...l used: aqua x2, grey,ivory x2 and beige Acrylic

It made a BATH MAT.....2014 update it is still in use and still looks good 3years later

l always work the ends into the work as l go so there is only a few ends to sew off

If you don't want to do the fill-ins then do a staggered join as you go 
matching like this and using a similar method matching the stitches and sl stitching as you go
Hoping to get the craft room yarn today or order it if l can't 
They really feel lovely under your feet
Teresa...yep l really am going to put it on the floor and walk all over it lol

Still thinking about the backing but something none slip as they slide all over the place on laminate floors

  5. I hope that your bathmat won't cause you to lose interest in the rug. They look great, I really like the blue, it makes it seem cheerful. But I really, really love that crochet chair. Where did you come across that?

  6. Looks great Suz but don't know how you will make it non slip.
    Make sure you tell us when you do, as I'm sure you will sort it.
    I really admire your skill

  20. There is a link above - says it is link to pattern for the CHUNKY 8 PETAL FLOWER BATH MAT. But that leads to page which says "This page does not exist." - in other words - NO PATTERN.
    Is this pattern available? I have some cotton yarn I'd like to use to make one of these for my daughter....but there's no link.
    Your work is absolutely beautiful! So inspiring! Makes me want to just keep hooking til I can get near as good as you are!
