This is a crochet pattern to create 6 watermelon shaped placemats and a watermelon shaped holder to neatly store them in.
This pattern is written in ENGLISH ONLY
This pattern is written using US terms and includes a chart to convert into UK terms. I have included photographs to help with instructions in the pattern. A printer friendly version will also be included.
I have also included adjustment instructions of this pattern to make a Sliced Apple Placemat Set, for those of you who would like to make matching placemats to go with my previous Sliced Apple Coaster Set. (You will need to have the apple coaster pattern to fully understand the adjustments)
I have used UK Chunky yarn for this pattern, you may use 2 strands of DK yarn together instead to achieve the same gauge. I have used a smaller hook than standard for this size yarn to create a tighter stitch, which will help prevent liquids seeping through when using the placemats. Finished placemats should measure approximately 27cm in diameter.
You will need: Red Yarn - approx. 250g Dark Green Yarn - approx. 170g Black Yarn - under 50g Polyester Fibre Stuffing - approx. 50g A button - 20-25mm in size Optional - Light Green Yarn for stripes and some pins - under 50g A yarn needle and scissors.
