This looks like the perfect placemat for the boys, farmers and anyone who enjoys the harvest season.
Design by Melissa Hassler from Lovable Loops.
Happy Fall Y’all! When I set out to design this pattern, I intended for it to be a throw pillow cover. After making it in single crochet I decided that it was too small and redid it using half double crochet. I think it looks much better. I was also happy to find out that it ended up being the perfect size for a placemat. So, I decided to go with it and I designed a matching coaster. You could still use this pattern as a pillow cover though! Just crochet a back of the same size, sew three sides together and insert a pillow insert like this one. Sew up the final side and you’re done!
