Free Mondrian Chart for Crafting

Make a Mondrian rug with a freebie and an awesome tutorial!!

I should have know that Marla would take over this rug, just like she takes over everything… So this Saturday, or Caturday if you prefer, I’m sharing the first part in this Mondrian latch hook rug tutorial where you can get this free Mondrian chart that can be used not only for Latch-hook, but also for embroidery, needlepoint or any craft where a chart would work out…

I was really excited to start this rug. There was no plan on where specifically to put it at the time. I just knew that this rug was going. to. be. AWESOME.

So I created my very first latch hook chart, because that’s how I roll (why would I purchase a pre-made chart by somebody who has actually done it before – oh, no that’s waaaay too simple). And I started hooking it that very night. That sounds really bad doesn’t it? Do you need to learn how to hook it? Latch Hook Tutorial.

About 3 rows in, Marla had already laid claim to the fledgling rug project and it kind of irked me because of the constant battle of fur I’d find but I dealt with it.

She was constantly checking in on my progress.

Any time the rug was anyplace and unattended for a few moments, Mar would get all up over it. And the rug made her into  kind of a jerk, hissing at any of the other cats who were just being curious kitties and wanted to check things out.

And then one day I finished the rug and left it out and when I returned I found this. Miss Marla was out cold on it. And I cracked.

So now, it’s Marla’s Mondrian rug. And she couldn’t be happier.

This is the inspirational image and the rug/chart is made as closely to it as I possibly could. While this isn’t actually a Mondrian, it is a Mondrian-inspired popular print/poster which I don’t feel so badly about ripping off.

    I haven’t done latch hook in many years, but your recent posts really make me want to pick it up again! The geometric designs are so much more fun than the kits they have in stores!

    How many packages/pieces of rug yarn did you use in total? I’d like to make this but don’t want to go out and buy too much or not enough. Thanks!

      I used pre-cut yarn, the brand was MCG Textiles in the colors 301 white, 302 black, 304 yellow, 360 blue, 368 ruby. You can buy directly from them online if you cannot locate them in a store around you: http://bit.ly/14qnPVc

      FYI there are 320 pieces per package.
      Blue – 2 packages (need 619 pieces – you’ll have 640)
      Yellow – 5 packages (need 1523 pieces – you’ll have 1660)
      Red – 5 packages (need 1448 pieces 1660)
      Black- 5 packages (need 1338 pieces 1660)
      White – 10 packages (need 2959 pieces 3200)
