Pumpkin Knit & Crochet Mug Rug Free Patterns

Sharing is caring!

So while yes, the Pumpkin Mug Rug Patterns are super cute for your hot or cold drink, I think I might give one to my hamster, Marlo. He likes to run across them, and it could be an area rug for his home. I have to admit; this little critter has sure made his way into my heart. And I feel like he is just as much into the pumpkin spice and fall home decor just as much as I am.

When we first decided to get him as a back to school pet for the kids, I was so happy hamsters didn’t have a long lifespan. Short commitment seemed reasonable. But dang it, now I’m mad they have such a short lifespan! He has become my cute little crochet and knit buddy.

How can I not just fall in love with him? And this is as big as he gets. When we took him home from the pet store we were told he is full grown. I’ve had hamsters before, but not one as nice as Marlo. He doesn’t yet sit next to me while I craft, but we are working on it. And he seems to love the fall home decor just as much as I do.

Pretty soon I’m going to introduce him to pumpkin season. I did an internet search and turns out he can have small amounts of pumpkin flesh. And I feel like I should make some cute crochet and knit items just for him. This is going to happen. But for today, let’s get back to the DIY crochet & knit pumpkin coasters.

Notes:

  • Please note, matching gauge both horizontal and vertical can be difficult. Extra rows can be added at the top if needed. So it is more important to match the stitch gauge versus the row gauge.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up in rows.
  • After the end of each row turn and ch 1. The ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • Since there are a wrong side and a right side to the mug rugs, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the colorwork. Experiment and see what works best for you.
