This pattern can also be used as an afghan.
Worsted Weight Yarn in desired colors and I hook. I used Red Heart Super Saver. Gauge is not important in this pattern.
Make 16 squares.
Add or subtract stitches as needed to reach desired size.
Row 1: Sc in second chain from hook and in each chain across. 30 sc.
Row 2: Chain 1, turn, sc in each stitch across. 30 sc.
Repeat row 2 until you get about 30 rows. If your work is not square, unravel it or add rows until it is.
Do not finish off. In the last sc on the last row, change to your edging color.
Do four rounds of sc in your edging color, making sure to work 3 sc in each color. Finish off and weave in all ends. Block if desired, but I didn't.
When you have finished making all your squares, assemble them as desired. Whipstitch the squares together and begin final edging. *A note on the edging: When adding the next color, do not turn your work. Before now, it didn't matter what side you wanted as your right side, but with the edging it will if you want it to look uniform.
Round 1: Starting at any corner, join edging color with a sc. Sc all the way around the rug, working 3 sc in each corner. Some decreases or increases may be needed to make the edges lay flat. Join to first sc and finish off.
Round 2: With one of your square colors, join at any corner with a sc. Sc all the way around the rug, working 3 sc in each corner. Again, some increases or descreases may be needed to make the edges lay flat. Join to first sc and finish off.
Repeat round 2 with each color. When all colors have been used, repeat round 1 again. Finish off.
