When I started thinking about what I was going to do for this post, I immediately thought holidays. So I went to searching. I think that I got something for almost every American holiday. Lets do this….
I thought that this one was adorable with the little pocket. With the colors that they chose, I thought that this would be perfect for Spring or Easter. Designer made this with the wind in mind. How does wind fit in with a placemat? Well this one in particular won’t let the wind blow your napkin or utensils away.
This placemat is made C2C (corner 2 corner). When finished approximate size is 13″ x 18″. You will need 100% cotton worsted weight yarn in two colors; she used Lily Sugar and Cream. You will of course need your 5.5 mm crochet hook, a stitch marker if your not familiar with corner 2 corner, and your tapestry needle to weave in the ends.
This placemat is also worked C2C. Corner 2 Corner is now really the new hit thing for crocheting. I’ve found a lot of patterns with it. She wanted to make sure that she got all 13 stripes for this placemat. She had to do what she calls a mini C2C which is just a half double crochet stitch instead of a double crochet stitch. I really do just love this placemat. She has pasted a photo and video tutorial of the stars because she managed to modify the C2C and make a star.
To make this placemat and napkin ring you will need Hobby Lobby I love This Cotton in Red, White, and Dark Denim. You will of course need your 5.0 mm crochet hook and your tapestry needle to weave in the ends. Approximate finished sized is 17 1/2″ wide by 13″ tall. The stars are worked separtely and then sewn on.
When I saw this one I instantly thoguht old school like 1950’s – 1960’s Patriotic Themed party. For some reason it just seems like it would fit so well with the old school banners and ribbons they used to decorate with. I love the fact that you look of this and think Patriotic not Flag like the placemat above.
To make this placemat you will need a worsted weight yarn; she used Red Heart with Love in Berry Red, Eggshell, and Peacock. You will need your 5.25 mm crochet hook, and last but not least your tapestry needle to weave in the ends. Approximate finishd size is 19″ x 15″. The stars are made separate and sewn on at the end.
This placemat is so adorable and I love that it is the shape of a pumpkin. It looks like it is made from granny squares. And the yarn she chose, perfect! I would use this placemat in the fall. If you wanted to use for hallowen you could crochet the shapes and sew them on to make a Jack o Lantern face. How cute would that look?
To make this pumpkin placemat you will need 1 skein Caron Simply Soft in Gold Ombre and Dark Sage. You will also need your 5 mm crochet hook and of course your tapestry needles for weaving in your ends. Approximate finished size is 15″ x 15″. This is made with both full granny squares and half granny squares both made by US Croching terms and then whip stitched to form the shape of the pumpkin. It would be wise to block your squares before sewing together.
This eplacemat is super traditional and I love it. Im probably going to have to make some for my household just for Thanksgiving. They just scream fall to me. I even have family that would just love these. I love the napkin holder to match as well. So festive. They are made using a special stitch; the x-stitch. She lists written directions and a video tutorial.
To make these placemats you will need worsted weight yarn in 6 colors. She used Red Heart Super Saver in Ivory, Brown, Orange, Gold, Red, and Green. You will need your handy dandy 6 mm crochet hook, and your trusty tapestry needle to weave in the ends. She does list gauge but its not super important, just make sure all placemats are made with the same tension so they come out the same size.
This placemat was part of a CAL this designer put out one year. This was week 1 of the Crochet Along. It is simple yet so festive looking. I like that Frosty is actually a pouch to hold the silverware. Such a neat way to hide it. Frosty is made as an applique that you sew on once the main part of the placemat is finished.
To make this placemat you will need 3 skeins of Creme de la Creme in Red, White, Green, and a small amount of orange and black. This yarn is a worsted weight yarn so I’m sure you could use Red Heart or Caron Simply Soft. You will need two 1/2 inch buttons for Frosty. Last but not least your trusty 5 mm crochet hook. Approximate finished size is 19″ x 14″.
Can you tell that I love this designer, LOL. I think that I have saved the best for last! I absolutely love, love, love these placemats. I just recently learned the buffalo plaid technique; not to mention it is very fitting for winter. These placemats scream log cabin covered in snow with a fire going in the fire place and the auroa borialis above in the night sky!! Yes, I can picture it clearly.
To make these placemats you will need a worsted weight yarn in 4 colors. She doesn’t list exact colors she used but does mention Red Heart Soft Yarn. You will need a dark, medium, light, and color for the center. You will of course need your handy 5 mm crocheet hook and tapestry needle to weave in ends. The placemats are made using basic US Crochet terminology.
