The finished mug rug, designed by Diane Knott, is about 7 1/2″ across. You can easily vary the size, starting with smaller circles for coasters or larger ones for a small table mat. If you go larger, you may want to add another row or two of decorative stitching spaced an inch or two apart to help stabilize the layers across the width of the wheel.
