I love the romance of a mug rug and. Place your coffee cup on a mug rug and there is enough room for a cookie or muffin when having your morning devotions, or an afternoon break. Grab the Caramel Snickers Coffee Happyccino recipe before you scroll any farther as you will want to try this delicious concoction that is so good hot or cold.

You can leave the mug rugs plain or add a button.
Adding a little bit of ribbon tied into a knot, to the side of the mug rug is pretty too!

These mug rugs are a compliment to the Diamond Shells Placemats. The placemat pattern is easy and boy do they make a pretty table! Change the color and ribbon theme according to the season’s.
Diamond Lace Mug Rug Crochet Pattern
Yarn used: Peaches and Cream (P&C) Cotton & Lilly’s Sugar and Cream (S&C) Cotton; approx. 50-60 yds. I tried to coordinate with the Pioneer Woman dishes and they match the Diamond Shells Placemats.
The colors used are: P&C = Mint & Rose S&C = White; Yellow; and Potpourri Prints
Optional Ribbon Embellishments: 4.5” piece of 1.5” wide Floral Fabric Ribbon, or any ribbon that fits the theme you want to present. Example, 4th of July, Christmas, Thanksgiving or Back to School. Just a few ideas for ya. To add a little knot bow, tie the 4.5″piece of ribbon into a knot and glue to the side of the mug rug or stitch on with sewing needle and thread.
