Crochenit Reversible Place mats

This is a new technique that sis and I learned together while she was here with the help of a tutorial that our friend Sandy has on her Crochet Cabana web site (see link at the side bar of this blog, yes I am lazy :). She gave wonderful instructions and I am hooked. I have decided to make a set of place mats that are reversible and I am using a variegated peaches and cream pound cone and miami ribbon yarn together. I am using a size G crochenit hook. The ribbon yarn side when done looks like a waffle pattern and it is very cool. Not sure how they will wash up since I am using cotton and acrylic together but I love the effects that the two different yarns give it.

Click on the photo to make them larger and take a closer look at the stitches. I like this technique much better than knitting. :)

Thank you Sandy for your wonderful Web Site and thanks to sis for sharing this learning experience with me.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the Bernat yarn! You are SO generous. I'm not sure what I will make with it, but just know that happy thoughts will be of you as I make it into something beautiful. Thank you again, Scarlet!

Your placemats are so pretty and I saw one in person. I love the combination of the two yarns. So happy you found something you loved from all the new things we learned. Now to tackle this cable crochet. LOL!

Thanks so much for socks and yarn! What a doll you are. I wonder if I will ever catch up. I've not gotten to gone blog walking and visiting in a long time, sure miss it.

Love the colors in your mats, is that what we used to call the afghan stitch?

Hugs again for all your support for the homeless and for my family during this difficult time. Your yarn gift was a real pick me up on a day when I really needed it. I felt like you were right here giving me a hug.
