Bright Placemats

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

With smaller hook, 14 stitches + 16 rows = 4" (10 cm) in sc. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Bright Placemats Reviewed by Ruthann Yeaton on 2012-01-31 *****
I have made two sets of these placemats (using a skein of bright green from another vendor; all the rest of the yarn is Lionbrand). I have to say it is VERY helpful to make a chart to follow. I just wrote "Rows 1-4," A, Rows 5, B, etc. I used lined paper and wrote the entire pattern. It was so easy to check off the colors as you moved through the pattern. BE SURE TO BLOCK YOUR FINISHED PLACEMATS. I have been steaming them under a pressing cloth, then leaving them on a flat surface to dry. It makes all the difference--brings out the weave and allows you to get them all the same size. Also, I didn't want quite so much fringe, so just used two strands per end stitch. Looks good. (If you sew, add four matching linen napkins. What a super gift!)
