Granny Circle Placemats


In June the Craft blog brought to my attention this neat pattern found over at The Purl Bee.

I knew I had some weddings coming up and thought that a set would make an excellent gift.  I headed over to my favorite yarn shop and then saved the pattern onto my Kindle.

They were easy and quick to make.  The pattern was certainly well written.  I chose a slightly heftier cotton yarn than what is recommended, but I think that a lighter weight yarn would make them just as nice.  I chose a color combination that is fairly neutral and inverted the colors, making the darker the primary color as to hide inevitable stains.

I didn't finish the set of four before the wedding, only because I'm a procrastinator, but the first two came out great!  I plan on mailing the rest of the set when I get them finished.  I totally recommend you trying out this pattern.
