Creating a Crochet Round Scrap Rug is a wonderful way to repurpose leftover yarn and add a touch of handmade charm to your home decor. This free pattern provides a simple and enjoyable project for crocheters of all skill levels. Here’s a description of how to make your own Crochet Round Scrap Rug:

Materials You’ll Need:

  1. Yarn Scraps: Gather up your leftover yarn in various colors and textures. This project is perfect for using up those odds and ends from previous projects.
  2. Crochet Hook: Choose a crochet hook size that complements your yarn weight. Generally, a size H/5.00mm or I/5.50mm hook works well with worsted weight yarn scraps.
  3. Non-Slip Rug Pad (Optional): To ensure your rug stays in place on the floor, you may want to attach a non-slip rug pad to the back of your finished rug.


  1. Start with a Magic Ring: Make a magic ring with your first yarn color. This will be the center of your rug.
  2. Round 1: Crochet single crochet stitches (sc) into the magic ring until you achieve your desired center size. You can switch colors as often as you like during this round.
  3. Begin Increasing: To make your rug lie flat, you’ll need to start increasing. This means adding more stitches in each round. You can use a stitch marker to indicate the beginning of each round.
  4. Continued Rounds: Keep crocheting in a spiral fashion, adding more stitches in each round. You can experiment with different stitch patterns or simply continue with single crochet for a uniform look. Change colors whenever you desire to use up your yarn scraps creatively.
  5. Size: Keep increasing until your rug reaches the desired size. Remember that larger rugs will require more yarn, so plan accordingly.
  6. Finishing: When your rug is the size you want, fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends. You can block the rug if needed to help it lie flat.
  7. Optional Non-Slip Pad: If you want to use your rug on a slippery surface, attach a non-slip rug pad to the back using a strong adhesive or sewing it on.
  8. Enjoy Your Creation: Place your Crochet Round Scrap Rug wherever you like in your home. It’s perfect for adding a cozy and colorful touch to any room.

Remember, the beauty of this project is in its creativity. You can mix and match colors, play with different stitch patterns, and adapt it to your preferences. Plus, it’s an eco-friendly way to use up those yarn scraps that often accumulate after other crochet projects. Enjoy your crafting!
