A Fabulous Hoooked Zpagetti Rug Pattern

This is a fabulous rug to make with the gorgeous Zpagetti yarn from Hoooked.  It crochets up amazingly quickly - I made mine in a lunch break - and can be placed at the side of a bed or cot or used as a bath mat.

It measures approximately 21 inches or 54 cm across, and can be made bigger although you will find that you will then need more than one roll of yarn.

Go to for the yarn or try here on Etsy

Because the yarn is made from recycled t-shirts you will find that sometimes you can only purchase one ball of a certain colour.


1 Big Roll of 850g, 120m of Hoooked Zpagetti Yarn
1 Size 10 crochet hook
A bit of strength needed, this is big crocheting ;)


UK Terms used Treble (tr) is the same as a USA Double Crochet (dc)
UK Double Crochet (dc) is the same as a USA Single Crochet (sc)

Start: Chain (ch) 6 and join with a slip stitch (sl st)

Round 1: ch2 (this will count as your first treble – some people like to chain 3 for a first treble – not to worry, do what you feel comfortable with ☺ ), then 10 more (tr) – making 11 tr in total including the first one made from ch2. Join with a sl st.

It will scrunch up at the start but don’t panic, all will be well.

Round 2: ch4 (this will count as a tr with a 2 chain) then *1tr, 2ch* all the way around and join to the 2nd ch of the ch4 that you started with. You should be left with 11 holes or spaces.

Round 3: 2 ch and 2 tr into the gap, *2ch, 3tr into the next gap* continue around and close with a sl st to the 2nd of the 2ch at the start.

Round 4: Same as round 3.

Round 5: 2ch, 2 tr in the same stitch, 1 tr, *2ch, 1tr, 2tr in the same stitch, 1tr* continue around and finish with a sl st into the 2nd ch.

Note: I like to do my increases in the middle of a group, but if you prefer you can do yours into the last stitch of each group to make life simpler ☺

Round 6. 2ch, 2tr in the same stitch, 2tr *2ch, 1tr, 2tr in the same stitch, 2tr*, continue around and finish with a sl st in the 2nd chain.

Round 7: 2ch, 1tr, 2tr in the same stitch, 2tr, *2ch, 2tr, 2 tr in the same stitch, 2tr, continue around and finish with a sl st into the 2nd chain.

Round 8: 2 ch, 1 tr, 2tr in the same stitch, 3 tr, *2ch, 2tr, 2tr in the same stitch, 3tr* continue around and finish with a sl st into the 2nd chain.

This finishes the increasing in order to make the rug with 1 roll of Zpagetti. You may continue with more rounds (increasing by 1tr in each section of trebles) if you want to make a bigger rug and have
more Zpagetti yarn.

Round 9: ch7, sc (single crochet) into the 7th tr of the previous round, 2sc into the 2 ch gap, *1sc into the first tr, ch7, sc into the 7th tr, 2 sc into the 2ch gap* continue around finishing with the 2sc.

Round 10: 10tr into the 7 chain loop below, then 2sc into the middle 2 of the 4 sc below. Continue around finishing on 2sc, cut the yarn by a generous amount and weave and tie the end to the back of your rug.


NOTE: If you have made more rows then in Row 9, instead of ch7, make your chain as long as the amount of trebles you have in each section, and then in Row 10 make as many trebles as is needed to give a nice and compact look.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:  Wash and leave to dry without using the tumble dryer, as I am not at all sure if the rug would take too kindly to the heat.
