Learn how to crochet a beautiful farmhouse style jute rug with inexpensive twine from the dollar store and a crochet hook!

DIY Jute Rug from Dollar Store Twine

The floor of our porch looks pretty darn bad right now. I had painted it a few years ago as a quick fix while we decided how we were going to finish it, and that “quick fix” turned into 3 years later… We’re finally going to tile the porch this summer, but until it gets warm enough I had to come up with some sort of more pleasing covering for our Spring porch.

I wanted something rustic and durable, and my first thought was an outdoor jute rug. I love jute rugs for their durability and their farmhouse look, and I thought it would be fun to try to DIY one! A lot of you love dollar store DIY ideas for their afforadability, so I decided to challenge myself to create a rug out of dollar store twine… and I love how this one turned out!

This DIY rug covers our beat-up porch floor, and it looks great with our new patio set (which I’ll share with you soon)! Plus, it was a ton of fun to make and it’s a great beginner’s crochet project.

The DIY farmhouse jute rug crochet pattern:

Supplies: 5 rolls jute twin from Dollarama & Q16 Crochet Hook

Ch 60 (or as many chains as needed to create the rug length you want; mine is about 4′ long)

Row 1: Ch 2. Skip 1. *DC into the back of the next chain.* Repeat from * to * until end of row.

Row 2: Ch 2. Skip 1. *DC into the front of the next chain.* Repeat from * to * until end of row.

Rows 3 – (However many rows needed to create your rug width): Repeat Row 1 and 2.

Finish by trimming rope & pulling end through final loop.

Cut 24+ pieces of jute twine, fold them in half, and pull them through the ends of the rug at even intervals to create a fringe on either end.
