Gram's Birthday Placemats
In a few days my grandma turns 92! I just finished some placemats for her birthday, so shhh!!!
I used a vintage pattern called Maker of Magic Bedspread. LOVE this pattern. So easy (and free)!!
Instead of size 20 crochet thread like the bedspread calls for, I used size 3 and a 2.2 mm hook.
I made a total of four placemats. Each placemat took four large motifs and five little ones (which are just the first three rounds of the large), and used about six 150 yd. skeins of thread.
They are about 14 inches in diameter, and for some size reference, here's a picture with my beloved Buddha Bowl. I think they could be used as placemats and/or doilies!
Again, I just really love this pattern! So simple, yet when you put the motifs together it makes really cool intricate looking designs. Well, I think so at least haha! I don't think this will be the last time I use this pattern!
