"The Sweeatheart Placemat is a beautiful Tunisian crochet placemat for that special evening with your loved one. Let him or her be impressed by your colourwork technique that looks far more complicated than it is! Similar sport weight yarns may be substituted to make the crochet placemat; please check gauge. Number of loops on hook equals number of sts for row counting after Return Pass. When changing yarn in the colourwork heart sections, the new yarn needs to cross over the old yarn otherwise there will be gaps (holes) in these parts of the project. To avoid tangling of yarn due to crossing over yarn strands when changing colours, split skeins into 2 equal balls."
