As you have probably guessed
by looking at some of my other crochet posts;
Rico's Creative Cotton
The colours in the stash
I bought the other year are so vibrant & fresh,
they practcally leap up at you.
Which make Creative Cottons perfect
for table mats.
To make things interesting for myself,
I decided to try out the Intarsia Crochet tablemat
I have been drooling over/avoiding
for the past 12 months.
The pattern is from a lovely Japanese book called
'Crochet with British Taste'
ISBN: 978 4 579 11161 9
How easy is Intarsia Crochet?!
If you haven't tried it
I have been kicking myself all week for taking so long
to get to this project.
Unlike Tapestry Crochet,
you don't need to carry along spare colours under
Drop & Move on.
No waste yarn, no fiddling about.
oh okay, there's a little fiddling.
There has to be
to avoid 5 balls of yarn twisting together
when you turn your work.
It's fun though!
I have to say I am pretty stoked with this effort.
The Tangelo colours along with the square blocks
makes for a lovely fresh modern look.
Perfect! on both sides.
