Looking for just the right rug to go with your decor? Having a difficult time finding something that clicks? How about making your own? Sure, there’s plenty of boring old rug patterns to be had, but what about a fun, unique rug that expresses your love for animals? What’s not to love?
The Whoot has compiled a fantastic list of animal rug crochet patterns, some of which are free. There are also patterns available for purchase, patterns that can be translated into English, and photo inspiration if you’re one of the more daring crocheters who decides to make your own patterns (and if you’re so inclined to share, it would be a great idea to note down the pattern and post it at your own website so the rest of us can benefit).
There are several options to choose from, in all different sizes, all different types of yarns, and many, many different colors. You could even pick out a wild color scheme and make an animal rug the likes of which Lisa Frank would envy. With so many choices, you may want to scroll through and save your favorites for later. Who knows when you’ll need a new rug and decide to add another to your collection?
Make sure to read the patterns ahead of time and collect the proper materials – starting a big project can be intimidating but if you take things one step at a time and prepare ahead, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is and how simple it can be to create something on a larger scale.
Want to try making your own crochet animal rug? You can find free patterns, patterns available for purchase, and inspiration all on the same page at The Whoot. There are lots of options (bugs, birds, domesticated and wild animals) available, so be sure and look through them all before you decide!
