Julie's Placemat

Julie's Placemat Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This placemat is a result of a request from one of the JPF Crochet Club members. It starts out as a sampler square but then is worked in the round after the 3rd row is complete. Imagine 6 of these on a white tablecloth with red plastic cups outside on a July 4th Picnic. Click here to download the PDF version
