​Linen Stitch Scrap Crochet Rug

Materials:

1500-1800 yds worsted weight yarn. For my rug, I used mostly Red Heart Super Saver, with a few other yarns mixed in.
Size P (11.5 mm) hook or appropriate size for your yarns with 5 strands together
Yarn or Tapestry needle
Skill Level: Easy – Simple 2 stitch repeat using only chains and single crochets. The only challenging parts are working with 5 strands of yarn at once, and changing colors one at a time (see Combining Scraps tutorial).

Sizes: 20 inches x 30 inches – Instructions include notes for adjusting size as desired.

Gauge: 8 st x 8 rows = 4 inches in linen stitch pattern. After row 3 of pattern, your work should measure approximately 20 inches x 2 inches. Exact gauge is not critical for this project, and in fact if you are working with scraps of different brands, your gauge may vary slightly. Choose a hook size that is comfortable to work with but still gives you a dense, somewhat stiff fabric – it should feel a little tight as you are working with it. The overall size can be adjusted as necessary by using more or fewer stitches/rows.

Abbreviations used:

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
st(s) = stitch(es)
sp(s) = space(s)
WS = wrong side
RS = right side

Instructions:

With 5 strands of yarn held together, ch 41.
Note: To adjust width of rug, add or remove chains as desired, using an odd number of chains.
Row 1 (WS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook, (ch 1, sk next ch, sc in next ch) across to last ch, sc in last ch.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first st, (ch 1, sk next st, sc in next ch sp) across to last st, sc in last st.
Repeat last row 56 more times, or until desired length is reached, ending on a RS row.
Fasten off, sew in all tails. When sewing in starting and ending tail, do not try to sew in the whole bundle at once, or it will be very thick and noticeable. Instead, separate the 5 strands of yarn and sew them in one or two at a time.
