I finished this rug earlier in the year for a kitchen swap, and realized I never posted it here! It's the Circle Motif rug by Donna Hulka, done in two colors (red and black) instead of the four called for in the pattern (which can be found in the book Crochet Me).  It's made with two strands of Red Heart, which I usually don't use, but which worked out well for a rug!



Mine didn't turn out nearly as neatly as the demonstration piece in the book, and I'd strongly suggest using a size larger hook for the connection process. You basically make the circles first, then connect them in strips, and then connect the strips together. Everything looked beautiful up through the strip part of the process; when I connected them using the size hook required, the final product looked a bit distorted. I'd probably make one again, but not for a long time - all those little circles became a bit tedious, but for some reason the joining process was the most annoying part.

It might be fun to do this in cotton someday as a bath rug...

It doesn't look that distorted!

Hah, it reminds me of checkers, though.

My partner's kitchen is black and red, and I didn't want to use white on the floor...but I don't think I'd do just two colors if I did this again. I really like the blue/brown motif in the version in the book.

Oh, I can definantly agree how the sewing it all together would get annoying.  That part always tends to annoy me the most when Im making things.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
