Crochet Mediterranean Doily Free Pattern for home decor - Knot My Designs

Mediterranean Doily

Tring Tring!

Ding Dong!

What these sounds remind you of? A telephone or a house doorbell.

While a doorbell is still present and efficiently used in most of the current houses, a telephone, an original bakelite telephone, is now considered as a vintage collection. The sound of the ring was Tring Tring! We used to roll the numbers with our fingers to dial. It was a strong and tough item that could be used to knock someone out too!

Not like the modern day-to-day smartphone where you are always concerned about it falling and shattering into pieces. The young generation may not familiar with these sounds anymore. Now you can have your own ringtones and doorbell sounds unlike us.

People born in 80’s and early 90’s are quite familiar with a bakelite telephone. We can recall those days when we used to run down to the hall to answer the phone. Unlike the mobiles and cordless devices of today, the phones used to have a big round dialer and no called id. Vintage! isn’t it?

Similarly, in the world of crocheting, a few designs are as Vintage patterns. Crochet Doily is one of the evergreen patterns. In India, these doilies cover the Bhoga (food offering) plate for the Hindu Deities. I tried this design for my customer, who has a small Pooja Ghar (Altar) inside her house. She can now offer Bhoga and cover it with a doily.

Process:

This is my first attempt to create a doily using crochet thread. I liked the Redheart – Mediterranean Surf Doily pattern. I tried making another one with regular yarn too. Table-cover, Patios table cover, Pooja-Ghar Thali etc are various ways where you can utilize doilies.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Diameter: 9″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement. Add a couple of last rows to increase the size.
  • You can add ruffles, laces with embroideries, beads, ribbons, or buttons, fringes etc.
  • These embellishments can be composed of suede leather, fabric, yarn, silk etc.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Rectangular Mosaic Rug Free Pattern as Home Decor - Knot My Designs

Rectangular Mosaic Rug

There are a variety of patterns around. Some are ancient, some are modern and some are evergreen. Out of them, mosaic art is evergreen for me.

Interestingly, this form of art dates back to the days of Mesopotamia culture in the 3rd millennium BC, where it was found in coloured stones, shells, and ivory. It has come a long way to become a popular craft.

Mosaic art is shaped by organising small pieces around to create a unified image. It could be used as eclectic, traditional, modern or contemporary themes for any interior or exterior decoration.

I was inclined towards learning different objects using crochet and decorate my home with mosaic art. I have already made Mosaic table mats for a customer and this was my attempt to learn and create a mosaic rug for my home.

Process:

The rug has worked horizontally but it gives a look of rectangular boxes repeated throughout. I liked the pattern from VintageCrochetRug – A Mosaic Rectangle. It is one of the most tiring and time-consuming projects that I have worked on.

Instead of working on the pattern exactly as it is scripted, I increased the initial chain count to 93 and followed the procedure.

Pattern Modifications:-

R1: Chain 93.

R2: Continued the pattern.

Tip: It requires patience, full attention, and regular re-checks. Any miss or skip of stitch is not visible until the row is complete.

Remember to add a layer of non-slippery rubber spray or shelf liner at the back of the floor mat.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 38″
  • Width: 16.5″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The open design is the main attraction of the mat. But you can add edging to form in a confined space.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Circular Patched Floormat Free Pattern for Home Decor - Knot My Designs

Circular Patched Floormat

Circles are one of the basic forms that we learn about; a shape that has no beginning or end. But as we grow we seek various inspiration and build our interpretations from it. Some look at it as infinity, completeness, while others might see it as a zero, nothingness.

With so many interpretations, this shape definitely plays a great role in defining our home. My inspiration was to create a conventional model of linked celestial objects and we are at the top of it.

Process:

The mat includes 3 sizes of motifs; Small, Medium, and Large. The count is 6 small, 6 medium and a single large motif altogether. These motifs are going to place on the floor to create the design and then they are sewn one by one.

The centre of the mat will be the large hexagonal motif. Align the 6 medium motifs around each side of the large motifs. Align the 1 small motif on each side of the medium motifs. Start sewing the sides of the large motif with a medium motif each. Place them on the floor after each stitch to make sure the distance between them is equal. Repeat the process for joining small motifs to the medium ones.

Small:-

R1: using 2 strands of same yarn, make a magic circle and 6 Single Crochet (SC).

R2 – R4: increase by 6 SC in every row and make sure the pattern does not take hexagonal shape. It should form a circular shape.

Make 6 such small motifs.

Medium:-

R1: using 2 strands of same yarn, make a magic circle and 6 Single Crochet (SC).

R2 – R6: increase by 6 SC in every row and make sure the pattern does not take hexagonal shape. It should form a circular shape.

Make 6 such medium motifs.

Large:-

R1: using 1 strand of both yarn each, make a magic circle and 6 Single Crochet (SC).

R2 – R10: increase by 6 SC in every row and make sure the pattern should form a hexagonal shape.

Make only 1 large motif for the centre.

Remember to add a layer of non-slippery rubber spray or shelf liner at the back of the floor mat.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Diameter of the Small Motif: 2″-2.5″
  • Diameter of the Medium Motif: 4″-5″
  • Diameter of the Large Motif: 6″-7″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement. The diameters can be increased.
  • All the motifs can be hexagonal or circular,  depending on your desire.
  • You can add more medium and small motifs to create a large mat.
  • The open design is the main attraction of the mat. But you can add edging to form in a confined space.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Septagonal Floormat Free Pattern with Non-Slippery base for your home - Knot My Designs

Septagonal Floormat

Triangles, squares, circles, and rectangles. There’s always an inclination towards the geometric shapes. The symmetry creates a structured look and feel, which always attracts in designing any material; whereas non-geometric shapes could be challenging if we do not put complete attention.

“Geometrics are at the heart of good design, whether incorporated with the main décor furnishings or as a contrasting design motif to highlight traditional pieces,” said Steve Lowsky, president of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Pride Family Brands that specializes in casual outdoor furnishings.

“Although there is beauty in intricate nongeometric design elements, there is simplicity in the use of geometrics that is currently providing a calming motif in challenging times. The simplicity of geometrics in a home and outdoor products has multiuse applications,” he added.

Since the customer interiors’ are contemporary, I preferred creating a 7 sided polygon for the rug. We have seen hexagonal, octagonal and circular floor mats but septagon shape has been rarely experimented with. I have used 2 strands of same yarn and created this mat.

Process:

R1: Start with a magic circle and 7 Single Crochet (SC).

R2 – R50: increase 7 SC in each row.

For more clarification, you can check out the 2-Yarn Basket process. The base formation is same. Instead of 6 SC, we are using 7 SC.

Remember to add a layer of Non-Slipper Rubber Grip as spray paint or shelf liner to create resistance when stepping on the mat.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Diameter: 40″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • Instead of an ombre yarn, you can use 2 strands of different colours.
  • The open design is the main attraction of the mat. But you can add edging to form in a confined space.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.

Multicolored Crochet Patched Granny Floormat Free Pattern with Non-Slippery base for your home - Knot My Designs

Patched Granny Floormat

We have classics in every field and the classic in the world of crochet is GRANNY SQUARE pattern.

Anyone who understands crochet definitely knows about granny squares. It is the iconic motif which is popular since 1970. In fact, the proverb “Old is Gold” holds appropriately for this pattern. Every crocheter must have made at least one granny square in their career. There are at least 100+ styles to make a granny square. To make any patchwork related product, granny square is always the 1st choice.

In my initial trial days of understanding crochet, I learned about granny square. Later, when a customer asked for a floor mat, I couldn’t resist making one for the house.

Process:

There are various geometric shapes achieved from this pattern. The basic square pattern is used in the floor mat. I have chosen 4 yarn colours to form granny square motifs. Later, I picked a yarn colour that contrasted well with all the motifs. This contrast colour was used to join these motifs.

There are 2 parts to this pattern-

  1. Granny Square Motif
  2. Joining Granny Squares (as you move along.)

Granny Square Motif Tutorial:-

I followed Bella Coco – Simple Granny Square for making granny squares.

Joining Granny Square Tutorial:-

Bella Coco – Join Granny Squares for joining these granny squares.

Remember: To avoid slipping and sliding, non-slippery rubber spray or non-Adhesive Shelf Liner.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions of the Mat:-

  • Sides of the square: 20″
  • Each Granny Square Size: 4″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • There are different ways to join the motifs. Refer the link to get a catalogue of your choice – 7 Ways to Join Granny Squares
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.

Crochet Curious Monkey Rug with Non-Slippery base Free Pattern for your Children's Room - Knot My Designs

Curious Monkey Rug

I wanted to make something for my nephew. I was thinking, what can be the best way to decorate the baby’s room? And I came across George.

CURIOUS GEORGE is favourite animated series of every American toddler. It is based on the popular books by Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey. It is about a curious brown monkey named George, who is brought from his home in Africa by “The Man with The Yellow Hat” to live with him in a big city.

I wondered a fancy monkey face doormat will not only add a variety in your crochet work but also adorn your kid’s room. This solved two purposes for me; an interesting decor for the baby, who is a huge fan of Curious George and decorate the room differently.

So, I decided to make a monkey rug, that could be used as floor mat inside the room or doormat at the entrance of the room depending on the style and need.

Process:

I liked the pattern in Etsy monkey rug pattern, but instead of buying the pattern, I tried making one on my own.I made the head with two strands of dark brown wool. The entire mat can be divided into 4 parts:

  1. Face
  2. Ears
  3. Eyes
  4. Mouth

Face:-

In the pictures provided by Ira Rott, she has worked on Double crochet(DC) stitch for face vertically whereas I went for a simple pattern of circular rug starting with 6 DC. I increased 6 DC in every row, up to 18 rows.

Ear:-

With 2 strands of dark brown yarn, start with chain 4 and join with Sl St to form a ring.

Row 1: ch 3, DC 5 on half of the ring, turn.

Row 2: ch 1, 2 DC over DC, turn.

Row 3: ch 1, *DC, 2 DC on DC*, repeat *-* , turn.

Row 4: ch 1, *DC over next 2 DC, 2 DC on DC*, repeat *-*, turn.

Row 5: ch 1, * DC over next 3 DC, 2 DC on DC*, repeat *-*, turn.

Row 6: ch 1, * DC over next 4 DC, 2 DC on DC*, repeat *-*, turn. Sew off.

Make 2 of these.

Eyes:-

With 1 strand of beige yarn for eyes, make 10 DC on the Magic Circle. Increase by count 10 on each row for 3 times. Make 2 of these for eyes.

Mouth:-

With 1 Strand of beige yarn, make chain 22.

R 1: From 3rd chain, Dc on the loop for 19 loops, 3 DC on the last loop.

R 2: Move to the opposite side of the chain, work DC on 19 loops. 2 DC on the last loop. Join to first DC with Slip stitch.

R 3: Ch 1, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on DC, 2 DC on DC. Join.

R 4: Ch 1, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 2 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 2 DC, 2 DC on DC. Join.

R 5: Ch 1, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 3 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 3 DC, 2 DC on DC. Join.

R 6: Ch 1, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 4 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 4 DC, 2 DC on DC. Join.

R 7: Ch 1, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 5 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on next 20 DC, 2 DC on DC, DC on 5 DC, 2 DC on DC. Join.

Continue increasing each row, as defined in the rows 5-7 for the total of 12 rows.

With Red yarn, sew the shape of the lip on the mouth.

Assemble:-

Place all the separate parts on or around the face as per the picture and start sewing. Use dark brown yarn for ears and light brown/ beige for eyes and mouth.

Remember: To avoid the Mat from slipping on the hardwood floor, tile etc there are options to provide nonslippery rubber grip. You can get them at any home improvement stores such as Walmart, Target etc.

  • for the Back of the Monkey’s Face, cut and sew the liner.
  • cut 2 half-circle shaped liners and sew separately for the ears.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Diameter of the Monkey Face: 40″
  • Ears Size: 4″-5″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The Monkey’s face can be made of fur yarn.
  • You can add black eyeballs to the pattern. Follow the pattern for making eyes for 1-2 rows.
  • There is no need to provide any edging to this rug.
  • You can add a bow or a tassel or pompom in the forehead or near the ears.
  • You can add pom-pom, tassels, charms, miniature idols, mini toys, amulets etc matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
