If you have found it difficult to find placemats that match your kitchen decor, why not knit your own?
This is an easy to follow written pattern that uses 4 colours of yarn. However, you can knit more or fewer colours.
The yardage mentioned herein is for 1 placemat and you will need the following specific amounts for 1 placemat:
Swan - 1 ball
Creme Brulee - 1 ball
Conch - 1 ball
Linen - 1 ball
If you would like to knit 4 placemats, increase Swan to 2 balls.
Striped stockinet: 4" = 16.5 sts and 25 rows
Seed st.: 4" = 17 sts and 26 rows
200 yards of Worsted weight
I learned to knit at the age of 8 and soon started spending my allowance on yarn. To this day, the love of yarn is still one of my weaknesses.
