Crochet Dining Table Mat

A delightful and sweet crochet dining table mat that needs very little concentration to make, so you can sit and crochet it while the diner is cooking lol. It is made using a simple shell and vst design and then edged with a flurry of more shells to give it a pretty appearance.

    Heather; Thank you for the beautiful pattern. Instead of a table mat, I’m making it out for a baby blanket. I chained 129 and followed your pattern. It’s really turning out beautifully. Thank you again.
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and yours.
