Ladies who Lunch Placemats


My dearest Neaverlanders

We are coming to the end of 2020. A year that has brought us all so many unexpected challenges.

For many of us crochet has literally been a lifesaver. It has given us purpose and joy and allowed us to express our creativity. It is the perfect distraction from the day to day issues we face.

I have been especially busy designing patterns for you. This is the 5th one to be released this week. The Ladies who Lunch Placemats.

Invoking long, lazy summer days. A light lunch and animated chats with great friends. Let’s raise a glass of cool champagne in celebration of the strong and independent women we are.

These placemats are an easy and fun project. I so enjoyed working with the colors I chose. The bright colors, contrasted with the stark white, are happy colors and lifted my mood every time I worked on the project. The pattern lends itself to endless color possibilities and I look forward to seeing pictures of your creativity.

I used a combination of DK (#3) for the main part and Superfine (#1) for the contrast color. You can use any yarn weight. Simply adjust the size to accommodate your chosen yarn

I have prepared a FREE INTRODUCTION document for you. Please download this for detailed information.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your loyalty and support during 2020. I would also like to wish you Happy Holidays. I pray that 2021 will be a much better year for us all.

Love & Light

The preferred yarn used in this pattern sample is ColourSpun Pure Cotton. ColourSpun is a South African brand, which we are justifiably very proud of for the following reasons:

  • ColourSpun yarn is created by hand; therefore, each skein is imbued with the artist’s energy and will have its own unique characteristics.
  • Cotton is the most used textile fiber in the world. It is a non-allergenic cellulose fiber that doesn’t irritate sensitive skin and is ideal for warmer weather.  
  • ColourSpun Pure Cotton Yarn is ring spun (a process that gives greater durability while maintaining softness, making it perfect for knitting and crochet) from the finest quality, locally produced, pure, natural cotton and colored by hand in the ColourSpun studio using a chemical free, earth-friendly process. All the dyes used are GOTS approved and have excellent wash-fast and light-fast properties.
