I have been sharing a lot of sneak peeks of this pattern over on Instagram. The Herringbone Bath Mat crochet pattern was written using Bernat Maker Home Dec. Have you used it? It’s a bulky #5 cotton/nylon blend which was perfect for the design I had in mind!
This is a tubular yarn that has incredible stitch definition and a soft cotton feel. Although it is available in 16 different shades, I chose to use Clay and Cream to match my bathroom. Made of a cotton shell with a nylon filling, this yarn is machine washable and dryable, making it an easy choice to use for Home Decor projects.

Note: This project is tricky to weave in, due to the tubular nature of the yarn. I recommend using a plastic tapestry needle and a lot of patience.
