You can adjust the size of your mug rug by adjusting the beginning chain (multiples of 2 +4) or changing the number of rows you crochet. This pattern uses the Elizabeth crochet stitch.
Mug Rug Pattern:
Rnd 1: Ch 24, Working in the fourth ch from hook,* insert your hook and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull up another loop in the same st, yarn over and pull through all four loops on your hook and ch 1, skip the next st*. Repeat between ** until the end of the row.
Rnd 2: Ch 3 and turn, Working in the first ch 1 space, *insert your hook and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull up another loop in the same st, yarn over and pull through all four loops on your hook and ch 1*. Repeat between ** until the end of the row working in all the ch 1 spaces across. You will work the last Elizabeth st in the previous rnd turning ch.
Rnd 3-10: Repeat rnd 2
Ch 1 and fasten off. Weave in all of the ends.
Cut 12 pieces of yarn in both color A and color B about 4 inches long. Starting with color A alternate the two colors by looping them through the side of the mug rug. Repeat on the other side. You should start and end with color A on both sides and use 6 strands of each color on each side.

I hope you guys like this cute little pattern. It’s quick and easy and these mug rugs make great additions to your coffee or tea time! They can also be used as coasters for any type of drink. I really have come to love this stitch (not only because Elizabeth is also my name) because it’s a nice and elegant-looking stitch.
