Crocheting is rapidly becoming one of America's most popular crafts. This book offers a wide selection of some of the best known placemat patterns ever created taken from various instruction booklets published some thirty years ago. These booklets are rare collectors' items and when one is occasionally offered for sale it sells for several times the cost of this entire collection.

Twenty-nine different placemats include round, square, rectangular, and hexagon mats. Each pattern has complete instructions, indications of the amount of thread, proper crochet hook and gauge and a photograph of the finished placemat. All of the stitches used to make the placemats are explained in simple diagrams. Fourteen charts, plus close-up shots of detail work and stitches.

Whether you want your table to have an informal country look, an elegant dressy look, a smart modern look, you can find any setting you need with these 29 placemats. If you enjoy doilies, many of these placemats used individually will make lovely ones.
