New knitting pattern - Somertide Placemats

Summer is finally here! As I write, the sun is filtering down through a canopy of green and there are hydrangeas and summer flowers all around. The table is set for lunch with glasses of fresh orange juice and brightly coloured table mats – perfect.

That's one of the highlights of summer, isn't it. Being able to slow the pace and enjoy leisurely meals together. So here's a new pattern which will make your summer dining a delight. The Somertide Placemats includes instructions for both placemats and matching coasters in a glorious combination of summer colours. 

They are worked in a wonderfully crisp cotton/linen yarn, Cotlin by Knit Picks which currently has 44 colours in its range, so you can select just the right colour for your decor.

You could make a table set with each placemat in a different colour or complete the whole set in one co-ordinated colourway. Select bright summery turquoises and azures blues to remind you of the crashing ocean waves you can see from your beach hutOr go for a more gentle colour palette of coral, seashells and sand. 

The pattern includes instructions for four different sizes of placemats so you can make the perfect set for your table, whether this is a small-sized setting for an intimate lunch or a long table out on the lanai with all your friends and neighbours. There are also instructions for matching coasters for a completely co-ordinated look.

The stitch pattern is taken from our book Reversible Knitting Stitches and lays beautifully flat. The stitch has a really interesting surface texture which adds insulation to help protect your table from hot or cold serving dishes.

The Somertide Placemat pattern can be found on my website, and is available for immediate download from the site.

Until next time – Happy Summer Knitting!
