Free crochet table mat pattern

Keep your dining table clean and pristine with these super-chunky crochet table mats!


These sweet crochet table mats by Esme Crick are a super quick and easy project to make thanks to the Hoooked chunky cotton. They’re the perfect table accessory for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, and as they’re so quick to make you can hook one up for every place at the table. We love the Hoooked Spesso Eco Barbante yarn, but if you’re feeling really creative, you could also make these using recycled t-shirt yarn!
