NOW with a crochet stitch video! (Click image link within pattern.)

In early January 2010 I needed a fresh new bathmat for the new year, and contemplated the cone of double-thick Peaches & Crème cotton yarn in my stash that I’d never swatched. I knew I wanted a nice texture to crochet and to look at every day around the house, but not so much texture that it would feel too lumpy under my bare feet.

Skill Level: Easy
This easy stitch combination looks pretty in a solid color, or dramatic in two colors. It feels soft and thirsty.

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • An easy ‘mock cable’ stitch pattern
  • An easy, effective crocheted ‘binding’ for a finished rug edge I’ve kept pattern abbreviations to a minimum for practicing pattern readers.

Finished Dimensions
Pictured bathmat measures 18 inches/46 cm X 25 inches/63.5 cm.
