Birthday Coasters and Mat
Hey everyone, today I have some filet crochet to share! I designed and made this coaster and mat set for my mom's birthday.
I love how with filet crochet, it's so easy to draw up a design on a piece of graph paper, and there's your pattern! After crocheting the chart, I wasn't sure what to do about a border. I finally decided to go with a scalloped border hoping that it it was a good contrast to all of the straight lines.
(I couldn't resist throwing in a picture of them with the staghorn fern that my mom recently gave to me!)
For the crochet specifics, I used size 10 crochet thread, and a 1.5 mm steel hook. The finished size for the coasters was 5.25 inches square, and the larger mat was 11 inches square.
I loved how they came out, and they should fit right in with the rest of my mom's southwestern decor!
