Bernat Blanket Yarn and Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick Yarn Bath/Kitchen Mat Free Crochet Pattern

Hi Everyone!

I realized the other day that we do not have a kitchen mat for our kitchen and I had quite a bit of leftover Bernat Blanket Yarn and Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick Yarn so I decided to use the leftovers for a soft and absorbent mat. You can use any super bulky yarn you have to make this and mix and match colours to create your own personal kitchen mat.

Abbreviations
SC
– Single Crochet
CH – Chain
SLST – Slip Stitch
FO – Finish off

Materials

The next step is optional, but if you have tile or laminate floors (or anything that is slippery) you might want to put a non slip drawer liner on the bottom of the mat to keep it from sliding around. You can also try using caulking or hot glue on the bottom of the mat as well to find out what works best for your floors. 🙂

Once you have finished your mat, you can enjoy standing on a nice and soft mat while you are at your kitchen sink or after a nice long relaxing bath or shower.
