Nutmeg Nibbles Placemat Pattern
Here in Kansas the weather is starting to cool off and the leaves are starting to change. This means that we are now officially in my favorite time of the year. Bring it on, fall! For some reason I love to decorate the most during the cooler seasons. Something about the smell of pumpkin spice and the crispness in the air. Bringing out my fall décor gets me into the spirit of football, comfort food, oversized sweaters, and surrounding myself with dear friends and family. This year as I pulled out our fall decorations I noticed that the one thing I did not have was fall themed placemats for our dining room table. We can’t be having that, so I whipped up a pattern to suit!
When I ran across this feathered stitch in Complete Crochet Course, I knew I had to incorporate it into a new pattern. Using basic stitches, mainly half double crochet, this pattern is perfect for advanced beginners. Not only did I design this new free crochet placemat pattern for fall using a stitch that reminds me of falling leaves, but the colorway of “Nutmeg Nibbles” couldn’t be more aptly named. Add in some cream colored napkins with wooden napkin rings and your fall table is set!
I have designed this pattern to use just ONE cake of Yarn Bee Sugarwheel cotton cakes. Because this yarn is 100% cotton, you could also use it as a hot pad with confidence as you serve large casserole dishes this Thanksgiving. If you’d like a long table runner using this stitch and yarn, that would be gorgeous too! Just keep doing the row repeat until you get it the length you like, then continue on to the edging rows. Easy peasy, just like we like it!

Yarn Bee Sugarwheel Cotton in Nutmeg Nibbles (100% cotton) – 1 skein per placemat
Crochet tightly so as to not have snag-able loops.
Reserve about 1/2 of the last color from the cake for the edging and border rows.
