Welcome to the Bursts of Aloha Mug Rug pattern. This pattern is inspired by the ever-popular mug rug trend. I imagine many of us are spending most of our time at home right now and have a constant hot or cold beverage on hand. How about a beautiful mug rug to go under your beverage. My personal beverage of choice is a hot cup of Earl Grey tea. This pattern naturally creates a thicker texture that works extremely well to protect your surfaces.
The yarn I used in this pattern is Dishie from Knitpicks/WeCrochet. WeCrochet was kind to send me this Dishie yarn, it is 100% cotton that is very soft and doesn’t fray. I also like that it doesn’t hurt my hands like some cotton yarn can. You can check out their variety of solid colors, multi-colors, twist colors, and colors available in cones.
The special stitch in this pattern is a jasmine stitch and I’ve included a video as well as links to help learn this stitch. With a little practice and patience, you can create this beautiful texture.

- This pattern includes a special stitch, the jasmine stitch which includes the puff stitch with 4 yarn overs. Puff stitch with 4 yarn overs is yarn over, insert hook into the stitch where you are creating the puff stitch, yarn over and draw through. You will have 3 loops on your hook. Repeat three more times, you will have 9 loops on your hook. When doing a Jasmine Stitch with 4 yarn overs, you will have 25 loops on your hook.
- Tassels are recommended.
- 100% cotton yarn is recommended.

Since you can get three mug rugs from one skein of 3.5 oz or 100 grams of yarn, this project is super affordable to make a set for your home or a set for a friend. I don’t mind if you use this pattern to create items to sell. These would look beautiful on your market table.
