This place mat, while incorporating easy stripes, starts with the lace border and just one package of Lion Brand Bonbons. Stitches are then picked up along one long side for working the stripes and, after being edged in a dark color for contrast, the all-important button finishing is added. Don’t feel you need to be matchy-matchy with the buttons or even the Bonbons – get creative with color and texture by mixing and matching both materials.
