"My Dad made me a beautiful farmhouse table, so I decided to make some placemats to go with it! I used Lion Brand's 24/7 Cotton to make these modern color-blocked placemats."

Materials List

  • Yarn: About 35-40 yards per color block of #4 medium weight 100% mercerized cotton yarn. I used 24/7 Cotton (by Lion Brand) in color blocks of Lilac, White, CafĂ© Au Lait, and Ecru. (Helpful tip: 1 skein of each color will produce 2 placemats, but 2 skeins of each color will produce 5 placemats.)

I'm a huge fan of crocheted placemats. I have always found that the ones you purchase in the store are never quite what you're looking for or that they often fall apart after attempting to wash them. Sometimes they even shrink and become misshapen afterwards. What better way to get exactly what you want? Make your own. Customize your colours to your decor and paint choices or make them all mismatched for a charming variation.

This is so gorgeous. I've always loved things for the house and placemats are one of them. Let's go and make this project.
