  1. Jennifer, mine is looking ruffled not laying flat. Maybe stitches are too tight?? Help please. Thank you!

    1. Maybe your stitch count is off. Every row should end with an even number. Its annoying to count stitches but hopefully it will help.

  3. Hi Jennifer. I made this using sugar and cream cotton. It's a little bit smaller than yours but still pretty. Thanks for the pattern.

  4. Thank you Jennifer for your tutorial. very easy to follow and my placemat came out beautiful! I used Lily Sugar and Cream and it came out not quite as thick but still lays flat, and lots of compliments. Thanks again. (I used pink instead of red)

  5. I absolutely LOVE this pattern. I have used it so many times now. I made it with Loops & Threads Creme Cotton Yarn. I was wondering if you had any pattern increase suggestions to make this into a larger piece - specifically for a round dining table. I notice that the DC in each space increase - how would you continue to increase?

  6. I did a variation of this with thinner yarn (4.00 hook) and it turned out beautifully. Thank you for this pattern!

  7. Does it matter whether we use the same type of yarn you are using or can we use a different yarn?

  8. I just finished this and I'm so happy with the results. I also used Lily
    Sugar and Cream yarn and even though I crochet a bit on the tight side it turned out larger than I expected. Thank you so much for the free pattern!
