Bat And Moon Placemat
"This is a fabulous Fall make, and perfect for Halloween celebrations! Does anything scream halloween more than a bat flying across an orange moon? Add that little something extra to your table for meal times (or just keep the table set with them). This pattern uses the tapestry technique so is suitable for confident or adventurous beginners. It is worked in rows of single crochet with colour changes as you work along the row, but with only 3 colours there is not a lot changes in most rows. This placemat is one of a collection of 4 we currently have which also includes a witches cat, witches hat and pumpkin. Together they make a great set! "
