Easy-Peasy Crochet Place Mats Pattern

I had yarn left over from making my Catherine Wheel Stitch afghan. So I decided to put together some place mats. I found inspiration online for these and they are really easy! Hope you like them too!

I used a size H hook.

ch 54
sc in 2nd ch from hook and across for first row
ch 1, turn, sc in 1st sc, *sc & dc in next sc, sk next sc* - repeat this format across for row, ending with sc in the last sc, ch 1 and turn
Repeat row 2 until desired size. I made mine 30 rows.
Then, sc in a contrasting color around the outside for the border. End with sl st, then continue with a sl st around the outside to complete the look.
Weave in ends.
My finished mats measured roughly 11 1/2" x 17"
You could also make coasters with this pattern!


  1. What kind of yarn should I use?

    1. Hi Susan! Use whatever yarn you would like! I used Bernat Super Saver Acrylic for mine but you can use Cotton if you prefer. :)

    2. Is this right? SC in first chain, then a sc and dc in the next then sk next sc? I think I'n not reading it right.

    3. Nope, you're reading it right. You're putting two stitches into one, then skipping the next stitch.

    4. Thanks. Been working on it. Now I just need to decide how many skeins of yarn I will need to make 6 of them. Also, I were to make coasters would I use the same pattern but just smaller or size I want?

    5. Exactly! Just chain to the desired width, divisible by 2 I believe, then add 1 more for base.
