Today Sabina shares: this crochet project I started for my bathroom a few weeks ago. It will consist of a couple of throw rugs (1 for the sink and a slightly bigger one for stepping out of the tub) and "Maybe" one for the toilet.

I finished this one which is for the sink. See, nothing fancy, just want to step on something I've made, totally easy (a great project for beginners) and here are the instructions...

You will need:
a crochet needle size USK 10 (6.50 mm), and 2 cones of 4-ply Peaches and Cream cotton yarn (Susan Bates hooks are my needles of choice and I got the yarn at Walmart for $6.74 each).

To Begin: Double the 2 cones of yarn throughout the project.

•Chain 65
•Row 1: 1 hdc (half double crochet) in third chain from hook, 1 hdc in each chain across to the end of the row, chain 2 and turn,
•Row 2: 1 hdc in first stitch, then you will do 1 hdc in each stitch across to the end of the row, chain 2, turn.
•Repeat row 2 till you reach your desired rug length
•To end: 1 slip stitch after last stitch is made to secure the work, edge both ends of the rug in tassels, done.

This pattern is super easy and you will love it. Change the needle size, yarn choice and length/width of this basic pattern to make table runners, table cloths, bed spreads...anything.
