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. 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.

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.


There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket.







I'm not perfect at making crochet patterns but I hope all the information any crocheter would need is in here!

Hook Size: H8 Gauge: 1” across cluster Measures: 32” wide by 34"-36” long (sizes vary by crafter) Supplies: 2 skeins each of three contrasting yarns. I used one of my favorite brands of yarn- Caron Simply Soft in Soft BlueRoyal Blue and Off White.
Instructions: Ch 122
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and across
Row 2: ch 1, *(sc, ch 2, 4 dc) all in next sc, sk next 3 sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc
Row 3…

Perfect Pot Holders: Free Crochet Pattern

Perfect Pot Holders

Double-thick, perfect pot holders! Made with cotton yarn. This pattern may be somewhere else on the internet, in a different context, but here is mine for the way I make my pot holders.

Row 2: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sc, sl st in next sc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1 turn

Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

This lacy crochet blanket made of rows of tilted clusters is perfect for your next stashbuster project! The lacy spacing between the crochet stitches goes great in Summer for your little one!

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!

Sizing information: Gauge: 1 pattern repeat = 3" Finished Size: 27" x 32" Skill: Beginner/Intermediate
