Crochet Place Mat
I decided for make some place mats for my guest; you know, for when guests come over and we play that we’re stylish than we really are. I’ve been wanting to try Lion Brand Yarn’s 24/7 Cotton, and I had a foreboding that place mats might be just the true crochet project. Have you seen the color selection for this yarn? Beautiful!
Yarn: About 35-40 yards per color block of #4 medium weight 100% mercerized cotton yarn. I used 24/7 Cotton (by Lion Brand) in color blocks of White, Lilac, Café Au Lait and Ecru. (Useful tip: 1 skein of every color will produce 2 place mats but 2 skeins of each color will produce 5 placemats.)
You’ll also need: Yarn needle
Gauge: 10 rows of 10 SC = a 2.25″ square
SC (single crochet),
SL ST (slip stitch),
HDC (half double crochet),
SC+HDC (this just means a half double crochet in the same stitch and to put a single crochet).
(1) Starting CHs do not count as stitches.
(2) This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
I hope you enjoy this project!
