All About the Yarn…

I went with “I Love This Cotton” yarn for my Farmhouse Plaid Crochet Placemat because it’s super soft and comfy, perfect for a laid-back and practical dining vibe, and they had this amazing robin’s egg blue shade that totally nailed the look I wanted for my summer table setup.

Yarn Subs:  If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby nearby or don’t like to support them, here are some wonderful alternatives.  You can use any cotton or acrylic yarn for this pattern, but remember it’s going to get dirty!

So you want to choose something that can stand up to repeated washings.

Border Option and Creative Ideas

To add that extra flair, don’t forget to explore different border options.

You can keep it simple with a classic single crochet border or try something more intricate with double crochet stitches. 

Let your creativity flow and experiment with different combinations to make your placemat truly unique.

I really LOVE the raw edges, but some of my testers mentioned creating a border around it.  That’s completely up to you! Be creative with a border and I’d LOVE to see it if you do.
