I have finally finished these placemats that I started a long time ago (so long ago, that I am not going to even say how long). I’m super pleased with how they turned out and I’m even more pleased that they are finally done. I usually start a project with full steam and then I get bored and don’t work on them for a while. This is a perfect example.
I only made two of them because there are only two of us and since they took me so long to make, I figure I should stop while I’m ahead.
Did I mention that they match our dishes perfectly?
I used the sugar and creme brand of cotton yarn. I love this yarn! I just did a simple shell stitch (the patten came from this book). I can’t remember how many chains I did, but I just measured my chain against our store bought placemats until it was the same size.
Normally these would have taken someone a day to make, but for me they took a lot longer. Nonetheless, I’m super happy with them and I can’t wait to start using them everyday.
