Tunisian Crochet Placemat Pattern Inspiration:

Back in May I was invited to participate in a fun challenge by Hobbii Yarn and I had to hop on! The challenge was based on the four elements – Earth, Sky, Fire, and Water – and we were invited to explore and interpret these elements through our pattern designing skills. 

I chose Earth and decided to create a minimalist kitchen set using Hobbii Friends cotton 8/8 to represent the Earth element.

A minimalist Tunisian crochet placemat pattern and coasters that can be completed by a beginner with some basic cross stitch!

I made some coasters and a matching placemat. Before I settled on this design, I played around with stitch combinations and different ways to add colorwork. The first option was Tunisian simple stitch with basic colorwork (1st pic), second option was Tunisian simple stitch and then added colorwork using cross stitch (2nd pic), and the third option was Tunisian simple stitch for the colorwork part and Honeycomb for the plain part (3rd pic). After some input and contemplation, I decided on the cross stitch version! I liked that it adds colorwork without actually doing any colorwork or carrying floats and I love that it’s a subtle minimalist touch. I absolutely love how it turned out!
