This simple knitted project has a fun story. Sometime last year I found a bag of yarn in my stash box and wondered for a while about a pretty project I could turn it into. Since I was quite busy with all kind of other projects I wanted it to be simple yet practical. I've settled on knitted placemats (inspired by these ones from Debbie Bliss magazine)
After several days of sporadic knitting I found a couple of other crafts to keep me busy and my half-finished project slowly migrated from the craft basket in the living room to the office/craft space downstairs.
- Decide on the dimensions of you final placemat
- Cast on an even number of stitches
- Seed stitch:
First row (k, p) repeat until the endSecond row (p, k) repeat until the end
- Repeat 2 rows until the placemat is of desired size. Cast off.
