We hope to inspire your creativity with the projects we share here. We are home schoolers and love to be different, learn new things and have fun. We try to be as open minded as possible and when people say you should do something in a certain way, we ask why? Why should we follow suit? We are all unique and process things in different ways, so we should be free to express ourselves in our own way.

I hope this brings you creative joy and inspiration.

I feel that placemats and coasters on a dining table really add an extra something to your eating time. I wanted something that people could make to their own specifications. I also wanted something that could be fun for children as well as being transportable to be used on a picnic, maybe, which is why I included a pocket for the cutlery. This means you can place them in, roll it up and take it with you. I did some with edging and some without to show they can be stylish either way. The pattern could also be used to make pot holders for your kitchen. I really enjoyed designing and crocheting these. They are an easy project for beginners, intermediate and advanced level.


PLEASE NOTE: the yarn I used was acrylic, which cannot be used for pot holders because it melts. The best type of yarn for placing hot (straight from the cooker) items on is 100%cotton.


The finished size of the placemat (without edging) is 12½″ (32cm) height by 16½″ (42cm) wide. The coasters (without edging) are 5½″ (14cm) height by 5½″ (14cm) wide.


I worked in UK Double Crochet/dc [US Single Crochet/sc] and UK Treble Crochet/tr [US Double Crochet/dc] stitch. It is a wattle stitch pattern. I tried out two edge types - one just dc [sc] all the way round and the other shell stitch consisting of  5tr [dc] in one stitch, sk 2 and sl st.

Yarn

Knitting Essentials Poundland (shade - Aqua, Cream).

2 (each colour) x 50g (1.75oz/150yds/137m) balls.

Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light Worsted/DK].

Tension/gauge: 22 stitches x 30 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the Knitting Essentials Poundland yarn 4 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was really easy to work with;

- There is a reasonable choice of colours available (if your local store stocks yarn anymore);

- It is really soft once made up and washed, and is soooo warm and wearable that you can use it as a winter hat - WE DID!

- It is hard wearing because we have used them two years in a row now, they are still in excellent condition and the only reason we won’t be using them this year is because the kids heads are too big!  Although, I will still wear mine!

- The only downside is that it is not the softest yarn around and stock in stores is unreliable, which is why I gave it a four;

- It is very cost effective at £1 per 50g ball, usually on a 3 for 2 offer, making them approx. £0.67p per ball;

- Would I use this yarn again? YES, but not the white glitter yarn.


I hope this brings you #creativejoyandinspiration.
