Festive Hanukkah Placemat/Trivet Crochet Pattern features Menorah motif. Instant download of 8 page PDF Crochet Pattern, with chart, using an intarsia method, similar to tapestry crochet, to create the Menorah design. The motif is worked in rows and then finished with a border worked in rounds around the square motif. This is a fun and interesting pattern to work. You’ll want to make one for your own Hanukkah celebration and several for gifts!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
F Hook (see note below on gauge)
Worsted weight yarn in Light Blue (Light Periwinkle), Dark Blue (Soft Navy), Gold (Gold) and Ivory (Aran). I used Red Heart Super Saver in the colors indicated in parenthesis. You will need much less than a full skein of each color: about 50 yards of Light Blue, 30 yards of Dark Blue, 10 yards of Gold and 12 yards of Ivory.
Stitch markers (optional)
Tapestry Needle (to weave in ends)
SKILL LEVEL – Some crochet experience is helpful. Patience and concentration is required for the motif, especially. You should know basic stitches, how to change color and how to work in the round. The pattern is not a tutorial, but there is a chart to follow and my instructions are very explicit and, I think, easy to understand, so that as long as you have some experience you should be able to learn the skills necessary to successfully complete the pattern. Should you run into any problems, I am always happy to answer questions from my pattern customers.
GAUGE - Gauge is not critical for this project. For the menorah motif, in the Red Heart super Saver yarn, using an F hook, my gauge was 6 stitches and 7 rows = 2 inches. Your gauge may differ and you may want to adjust your hook size depending on how you crochet and whether you use a different type of yarn.
