"The Snowflake Placemat is a great way to decorate your table during the holiday season. The inspiration was Santa’s sweater. Can’t you just imagine Santa wearing a cozy, textured sweater with these adorable snowflakes around the chest? Well I wanted to take that cozy feel and translate it into a placemat! The Snowflake Placemat is worked from side to side and starts out with a charted snowflake design. The edges are worked in tapestry crochet and the center is a ribbed “knit-look” that works up super quick. If you’ve never worked tapestry crochet, don’t worry, it’s really pretty easy and I have linked a couple of tutorials you may find helpful too. To achieve this clean design look, I worked each row from the right side. Yes, that means a few extra ends to weave, but I think the end result is worth it. You could also leave the ends long and trim them for a nice fringed edge if you like. Designed in #4 Worsted Weight Yarn Size: 13” tall x 19” wide"
