I recently discovered Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn by Lily. I think it’s quite popular among crocheters, but somehow I only now made a complete crochet project using this yarn.
I have had an idea to make a bath mat for quite a while. Hundred percent cotton yarn would be the best choice for such item, so that’s why I turned to Sugar’n Cream.
My bath mat is simple, though I had a lace trim in mind for it. Eventually I rejected the notion because this is an item that will be washed regularly and, therefore, a sturdier and tighter trim would be more practical.
The alternating rows of double crochets made into back loops only and front loops only gave me a beautiful ribbed texture.
Measurements: 27 by 17 inches
Big ball of Sugar’n Cream by Lily (710 yards) Note, I didn’t use the entire ball of yarn, I have about 1/3 of it left.
US size hook H/8 (5 mm)
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each ch across. Ch 3, turn.
Row 2: dc in front loop only in each dc across. Ch 3, turn.
Row 3: dc in back loop only in each dc across. Ch 3, turn.
Repeat Row 2 – Row 3 until you have 24 rows in total.
Trim: Make one round of sc evenly spaced around the mat. Then make one round of crab stitches (reverse sc).
