Today I thought it was time I showed some of my knitted mats. These are a selection from my craft table that I have, I usually go into the Craft market at Cheese and Grain in Frome once a month.
This peach one is my latest coffee mat, the left is a picture of the whole design and on the right is a close up of the centre.
Some of these designs are from German patterns, there is a big difference between English and German patterns, German patterns are done from grid where as English patterns are written in full.
This another large mat again the picture of a close up of the design and on the other picture of the whole mat.
The next few are a selection of smaller mats, in a variety of colours and designs.
This design below is a German pattern of a knitted star mat, quite easy to do start the middle on a set of four needle and then take a small number of stitches and do each point at a time and this makes a star design.
All the mat are knitted in merchandised cotton no 20, on size 12 needles, a set of four for the middles and then the larger ones are transferred onto a round needle.
I have put another selection of knitted mat at the bottom all in different designs.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my knitted items, I have been knitting since I was three, my mother taught me to keep me quite when visiting my grand parents, who were very Victorian. The children in their eyes had to be seen and not heard. A vast difference to life today with the modern children.
Have a nice day and look forward to seeing you visiting my blog again soon
