These place mats are so freaking easy and perfect to whip up! Decorate your table this Summer with colorful pride! Simple 3 double crochet clusters in a row is the stitch that makes these place mats.

I used Hobby Lobby 'I Love This Yarn' in Red, Royal and White. Then for the simple single crochet and double crochet border, I used 'Old Glory'. I think they turned out absolutely awesome!
