A very cool idea, to do this model, is to compose the rows with the colors of the rainbow, so this figure is formed through the shape of the rug itself.

Its format blends perfectly into the decor, as the straight line of the rug is flush with the door. In any case, the half moon brings a romantic round shape to the environment.

This style is perfect for those who want to wear a round shape, but at the same time want a more compact piece to be close to the door.

Square Mat 

The square format brings modernity and simplicity in the same proportion, depending on the colors and textures used.

The square usually appears with few details and in minimalist decorations.

In this case, the crochet stitches tend to appear closer together and with less spacing.

For example, the corners and edges can bring surprises in the details, such as fringes, or a ripple border. 

Round Carpet 

The round mat for the entrance door is not so common, but it is still an option.

When someone wants to place a crochet rug for the entrance door in a round format, they tend to choose the half moon model because it is more compact.

After all, the round model ends up taking up more space at the entrance, although this can be very interesting to escape the pattern and compose with creativity.

In this sense, the circle is great for decorations that combine with mandala-style compositions or with the use of many colors.

Oval Carpet 

The oval format also runs away from the standard, bringing curves and more sinuosity, regardless of the size. However, its length resembles the rectangular shape as well.

Therefore, this model works as an intermediate option between the shape of the circle and the rectangle. Thus, it can be used for a more delicate or more methodical decoration.

What will make the difference will be the color and texture compositions, not to mention the choice of crochet stitches that will be used.

Rectangular Carpet 

The rectangular crochet rug is the most traditional and basic to compose the entrance doors.

How to crochet half moon entrance door rug

Ready to start your half moon crochet rug? Work with size 6 string, in the color you want, and take the crochet hooks to start the step by step.

Remember that darker colors can help hide dirt from the rug, but that doesn’t mean lighter colors can’t be used.

Tips on how to do it

Just start with three chains, return to the first chain and make five double crochets in the same place.

Thus, the half moon shape will already appear and the process will continue with sequences of double crochets in different chains.

This model also forms groups of high points with spacing, but nothing too complicated to do. Following the step by step, you can’t go wrong.

Basically, the high point block idea works by increasing the number of points in each block as the rug grows in size.


The final border is a more elaborate detail to make the half moon rug very attractive and creative.

However, it is an optional finish and can be replaced by simpler sequences, such as barring made of double crochets in each base stitch.

Which thread to use for a crochet rug for the entrance door?

The string lines can be used and are usually used for different types of rugs, including those that will be in this position.

Another important factor is the numbering, which needs to be according to the chosen model, but the most common sizes for this piece are numbered 6 and 8.
