Crochet rug was on my to do list for a while now. Now I’m finally ready to crochet a rug for my bathroom! I want my crochet hexagon rug to lay next to my bathtub. While I was sharing sneak peaks on social media I’ve got so many suggestions for this rug to be in the nursery, as a kitchen mat and even as a center rug in the living room (if I was to make it bigger, of course). And I love all these ideas, because this pattern of crochet hexagon rug can be so versatile. Make it bigger and smaller, with 1, 3 or many colors.

But it has more than just versatility. I absolutely love the texture of the rug, I made it with poly crochet cord from my etsy shop. Before I started crocheting my rag rug I was thinking what yarn should I use to crochet the rug. I definitely wanted to be a bulky thick yarn so that my project is quick but also durable. While tshirt yarn is great to crochet a rug with, I wanted my crochet rug to be easy to wash and dry. Poly crochet cord makes this rug easy to take care of. It’s machine washable, air dry but it doesn’t take too long to dry as it would with tshirt yarn for example.

What is the crochet stitch used in a rug?

I’m not going to lie, I tried different variations of crochet stitches and ended up with a rohtang crochet stitch. I previously used this stitch in a crochet basket, like this Xmas crochet basket.

I quickly became a fan of a rohtang stitch, it’s a pretty interesting stitch that not many crocheters know. What I like the most about this stitch is it works so well with tshirt yarn and poly cords. The stitches are very neat and give a pretty thick texture, exactly what I needed for my bathroom rug.

Is this hexagon chunky rug pattern suitable for beginners?

I would rather say it’s best for adventurous beginners, meaning you’re very much still learning but confident to try something harder. I give this level because of the rohtang stitch. But don’t hesitate to watch my video tutorial. Once you get the hang of a stitch it’ll come out easy.

The rug consists of 13 hexagons that later on sewed together to form a rug. You can make your rug larger or smaller by making more or less hexagons. I even have an idea of crocheting a giant rug using the same pattern! You can also play around with different color combinations for your crochet rug.
