I’ve been wanting to make placemats for a long time and finally got to it with my last yarn order from KnitPicks. What I didn’t expect was just how much yarn they eat up! I intended to make 4 placemats so I ordered 4 balls of yellow, but it took 1 and a half balls to make one placemat so I’ll have to order more later on. The third one is sitting in my basket unfinished until then. I wish Knit Picks would make bigger balls. Everyone likes big balls.
But they were really fun to make! I’m afraid to actually use them though because the thought of ketchup or gravy dripping on them makes me want to cry. I guess I’m one of those neurotic crocheters who makes supposedly functional things but then makes everyone not use them. Strictly for decoration purposes!
What’s great about these mats is that you can easily change the size by changing hook sizes.
Yarn used: KnitPicks Comfy Worsted in Creme Brulee and white for the border (it’s a cotton/acrylic mix. LOVE)
