These homemade placemats make every breakfast bar even more comfortable. We'll show you how to easily crochet them yourself with two different patterns.

You need this:

The next breakfast can come with these great placemats.
  • Anchor Style Creativa (100% cotton, length about 70m / 50g) in color 01309 Eggplant (about 100g)
  • Crochet Hook No. 4

And this is how it's done:

Basic pattern for the hemstitch look:

Crochet as follows on a chain in back and forth row as follows:
1st row: 1 crochet stitch into the 2nd stitch of the air from the needle, crochet 1 crochet stitch in each following stitch
2nd row: Crochet 3 pieces of air as a substitute for the 1st stick, into each solid M 1 stick
3rd row: 1 air mesh in addition, in each chopsticks 1 firm stitch, in each case only in the front mesh member pierce.
4th row: like 2nd row
Work the 1st to 4th rows 1x, then repeat the 3rd and 4th rows.

Instructions for the hemstitch look:

Cast on 49 pieces of air and a spiral air stitch and crochet in the basic pattern = 49 stitches. After approx. 41 cm from the stop (following a row of sticks), crochet the set in rounds as follows:
1st round: 3 air stitches as a substitute for the 1st stick, * 2 air stitches, in the following row of sticks on the long sides or at the narrow sides 2 sticks uncoiled and in the following stick a 1.5 times stick (= 2 envelopes on take the needle and cut off 1 x 2 and 1 x 3 loops together), repeat from * crochet in each corner a 1.5-fold stick, 5 air stitches and a 1.5-fold stick into a puncture site. This and all following rounds with a caution: After this and all following rounds turn the work, that is to say in the opposite direction further crochet.
2nd round: 1 additional air stitch, 1 stitch in each stitch, always pricking only into the front stitch piece. Also make 2 sts at the corners together (= pull through a loop for each sturdy stitch, then use an envelope to cut off all the loops on the needle together).
Round 3: Turn with 1 air mesh, in each fixed loop 1 firm stitch, while working in each corner 2 fixed stitches in a puncture site.
4th round: In each fixed stitch a Kettmasche, in each case only in the front mesh member piercing. Cut the thread.

This is what the hemstitch look looks like when it's done.

Basic pattern for the carobordure:

Crochet on a chain or a previously crocheted row of fixed sts, crochet 1 stich in each stitch or in each stitch or stitch, and turn each stitch with 1 stitch of air.

Instructions for the carobordure:

First work for the carobordure (drawn in black) according to the crochet pattern, starting at the beginning of the arrow A, start 6 air-stitches and 1 spiral-stitched fly and crochet in regular stitches. The numbers in the crochet letters indicate the rows. For the 1st check, perform the 1st - 6th row 1x. Then follow the directional arrow to the second check and crochet as shown. A total of 6 checks work, cut thread. Now crochet the narrow sides and the lower long side of the carobord (= green). Begin by crocheting the plaids at the beginning arrow B with 1 round air mesh, while the outer corners of the carabord door by chain stitches with the air chain chain. In addition, on the long side of the pattern on all 6 diamonds complement mutatis mutandis. Close the round with 1 sliver in the 1st airlock. Then crochet the narrow sides and the lower long side 1 x with the 7th - 9th row. Finally, work the rest of the placemat (= drawn in red). For this work on the air stitches of the non-crocheted long side still in the basic pattern continue = 60 fixed stitches. After about 41 cm from the beginning of the basic pattern cut off the thread.
