Granny Square placemats

20130619-105827.jpg
Granny Squares again! Seems like I can’t get enough of it and the colour combo orange-blue- white is a favourite of mine for quite a time too. The placemats are really easy to make: Just crochet as many squares as you like, sew them together and join one final round single crochet to get the edges nice and neat. I decided for a bulky yarn, so the mats are not too flat and get enough stability. I’ve not decided finally what to do with the back side. I had the idea of sewing fabric in a matching colour – but maybe I will leave it as it is. I will see what happens. In the meantime I will crochet some more of these mats so that I’ll have enough around when I’ll have guests for dinner. Yay!
