Are you ready to get creative with some yarn colors? I have a crochet placemat with so many options for color combos it can make a gal dizzy. This fresh design is a flexible soft open weave look. To make you will need a 5.5mm hook and two shades of natural fiber yarn. I used cotton mostly but for one of the designs I used one tencel, which is a yarn made from wood pulp like bamboo.
I used a silver sparkle yarn in both red and white to give a festive Christmas look.
This four row repeat can be worked even longer to create a beautiful table runner that fits your table perfectly.
Depending on how many hours per day you can devote to your project you can have it done in 2-4 days.
I also did a modern day to day version to match popular gray decor with either white or black accents. The accent yarn is a black and white twist tencel yarn paired with black cotton (it’s not hard to work with in this design. I know most of us dislike working with black yarn but it is a breeze in this pattern) and gives such a fresh look. I love how it turned out!
