Eyelet-Edged Placemat & Coaster


RELEASE DATE:  March 2001.  

DESCRIPTION:  This set of table linens includes a rectangular placemat and square coaster in garter stitch with a simple eyelet edging. They should be made with 100% cotton or other absorbent fiber (don’t you hate those stone or plastic coasters where the water just runs off or drips off the glass every time you pick it up?), and they’re machine washable and dryable, too.

SIZE: Placemat is about 15 by 10 inches. The coaster is about 4.25 inches square after machine washing and drying.



  • YARN: 100% cotton worsted weight or double knitting weight yarn, such as the easily available Lily’s "Sugar ‘n Cream" (95 yards per skein of ombre yarn, 120 yards per skein of solid colors) that I used for the samples in the picture. Another fabulous choice would be linen in worsted weight (or use multiple strands of a finer weight yarn).
    • about 20 yards per coaster
    • about 170 yards per placemat
  • NEEDLES:  Size 5 needles (straight or circular) or size to give gauge.
  • MISCELLANEOUS:  Darning needle to weave in ends.

GAUGE:  About 5 stitches and 5 garter ridges per inch. What you’re looking for is a firm fabric that won’t easily bag out or squash down under the weight of a filled plate or full glass.
