I’m a little addicted to creating patterns for your kitchen and dining room lately. I love them because they’re quick to make and fun to give as gifts.

Here are a few patterns I’ve created lately:

I hope you enjoy making these as much as I do!

After making the boho round placemats, I knew I wanted to eventually experiment with more placemats.

And if you’ve browsed sites like Anthropologie or Pottery Barn lately, you’ll see spiral placemats are some of their best sellers. So I thought I’d give these a shot.

After many (many) experiment sessions, a spiral crochet placemat was created.

The Yarn

Cotton yarn has easily become a favorite of mine, especially Lion Brand’s 24/7 cotton. It’s incredibly easy to work with and the end result is something you can use over and over again.
