Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats


Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats

Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats
Named after the Heavenly Blue Morning Glory flower! Spring is upon us and I thought this was the perfect new pattern to share! I really felt the blue and yellow of these crochet placemats matched the beautiful blue morning glory with a little yellow in the center. 

For this pattern, I simply used the stitch from the blanket here on my site called Block Party. I used three colors, but arranged them differently.

Heavenly Blue Crochet Placemats

5mm/H8 crochet hook
1 skein each of three colors
Yarn Needle

For the colors in my placemats- I used Red Heart Lemon, White and a Hobby Lobby ILTY blue. You can use Red Heart Blue in it's place!

The placemat measures 12" x 16". To adjust for your own desired size, the stitch multiples is 6 plus 5 for base chain. Gauge is 1" across 3 dc.

Ch 53

Row 1: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in next ch, *ch 3, sk next 3 ch, 1 dc in each of next 3ch, repeat from * across to end 
You'll end with the final repetition of  1 dc in 3 ch.

Row 2: ch 3, sk next 3 dc, *working over next ch 3 space, put 1 dc in each dc two rows below
(Note: at start of blanket, you'll be putting the 3 dc into the foundation ch)
Be sure to use both loops of the dc. 
ch 3, sk 3 dc, repeat from * to the end of the row- you'll end with a ch 3, 
Put 1 sc in top of turning ch. You may be tempted to do a dc in here, but it's better if you do sc

This is where you'll want to change color.

Row 3: At this point, I would normally only ch 2. That's how my tension works for me. Test it for your own workmanship. Otherwise, ch3, sk 1st stitch.
Working over ch3sp put 1 dc in each of skipped dc two rows below, * ch 3, sk 3 sts, working over next ch3sp put 1 dc in each of skipped dc two rows below, repeat from * across

The piece is made by repeating rows 2 and 3, but you'll be doing it row 3, then 2 one color, then change, and repeat row 3, then row 2, and so forth. 

I put my Lemon Yellow yarn in at the 2nd row, 7th row and 12th row. The placemat is a total of 16 rows.

For finishing, when you begin row 16, you're going to do sl st in next 3 dc rather than chaining 3 and skipping them. Then do your normal 3 dc in the 3 dc two rows below. I did not make a border. I was satisfied with the outcome as is!
