Modern Crochet Placemats

The pattern I used for this was a granny circle… How can a pattern that has the word “Granny” in it be called modern?! It’s all about the colours!

I am currently in Germany for a couple of months for work, and I must say that choosing which yarns to take with me was one of the single most difficult decisions of the year so far!

Ultimately I think I made the right choice, but it’s still tough to be separated from my full yarn stash for so long!

Let me know if you would be interested in the pattern. It’s a super simple one, and I finished two placemats in one day, so it’d make a nice quick gift!

Surprisingly this pattern actually took a lot longer than I expected. I used Drops ♥ You #6 with a 3.5mm hook, so that probably prolonged the project! I really like the colour contrast on this, and am planning to give this bag away so I’m super tempted to make another for myself with a nice bright blue as the contrast colour. Hmm… maybe it’ll be another project to work on during my holiday.

To be honest, I used a pattern as a general guide only. I used much thinner yarn than what they specify, so that meant I couldn’t follow the pattern stitch by stitch. Anyhow, it’s a lovely design and you can find it HERE!
