Crochet Heart Rug

free crochet pattern heart rug zpagetti

A while ago I started playing around with Zpagetti yarn from Hoooked and made the 5 Spirals Rug. This was such a fun project, that I bought some more Zpagetti yarn. The yarn is red and I designed a heart shaped rug made with one big Zpagetti cone.

It is constructed like a spiral, that starts from the center. Then you work back and forth to make the right side of the heart. To get a finishing touch, crab stitches are crocheted all around the heart. A fun and fast project!

Level   Easy/Beginner 

Stitches    Magical ring, chains, single crochets, double crochets and crab stitches.

Material     1 Zpagetti cone from Hoooked. You can also use T-shirt yarn or find thick cotton yarn on Etsy.

Hook   12mm     US:  17

Size   22 inches  x  22 inches

This is a free crochet pattern for a rug. Start making a magical ring/adjustable ring. You can see my Tutorial on the magical ring. Work until the below photo. (It will look a little different with the super bulky yarn).
