  • This modern crochet placemat is made as one piece from the bottom up.
  • If you do not know how to do a TC (triple crochet) you can find lots of tutorials online, but it is just like a double crochet except you are yarning over twice, inserting your hook through the stitch and yarning over twice on the way up.
  • The single crochet after each triple crochet must be TIGHT to pull down the height of the triple crochet and pop it out as a little bobble.
  • Keep the tension on your single crochet in the middle of the placemat quite loose, if you can.
  • The CH 1 at the beginning of each row (except the first row) IS COUNTED as a stitch. As such, from Row 2 forward you will be skipping the 1st ST in each row because the CH 1 counts as a stitch. This keeps the side edges cleaner.
  • Stitch count for each round will be indicated in parentheses ( ) at the end of the row.
