Looking for a quick and easy project that will bring some colour to your home? Well, look no further! Dutch crafter Jorine Tieleman is here to show you how to make crochet placemats that will bring some fun to your table. We love how versatile crochet placemats are, you can use them all over the house for added texture and colour. Plus you can just chuck them in the wash when they get grubby! Her crochet placemats pattern is really simple to follow and a great project for newbies. We have a crochet for beginners guide which covers all the basic techniques and a guide to the best crochet hooks as well as a round-up of the best crochet kits for beginners so you can make your crochet placemats with ease. Can you just imagine these on your table paired with our crochet table mats which are for bigger pans and dishes? A colour explosion!
This project is also a great stash buster. You can make yours in whatever colour suits your kitchen scheme and use up all those yarn scraps since every hexagon is a different colour. We’re a big fan of stashbuster projects because they’re both good for the planet and good for your bank balance. Once you’ve finished your crochet placemats we’d love to see a photo of them so tag us using #gatheredmakers and #molliemakes. But for now, let’s get on and learn how to crochet placemats. Over to you Jorine!
