This is a great way to use up those leftover pieces of yarn that aren't big enough to do anything else with!
The beauty of this pattern is that the second row is basically the connecting row. There is no special connecting stitch to be done later on!
I got the idea for this project from Atty's Blog Spot. She does it a little differently and she makes a blanket instead, but there are pictures that can help you get the idea if you are having any trouble. I kind of simplified the basic pattern, but it is generally the same only I make a placemat and add a border. Enjoy!
Make the Spots:
You need a total of 29 spots for each placemat
Using scrap yarn...
**HINT: I just make 6 of every color this is enough to make 2 placemats with a couple left over.
Complete First Spot:
Using your background yarn....
Add Second Spot:
Using background colored yarn...
Add Third Spot:
Continue to connect more spots..
Crochet the Border:
It's beautiful! And it is for me...yes, I have finally made something for myself. Well, it is made with leftover scraps of yarn after all :-) How could I possibly give it away?
