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.
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 hut. Or go for a more gentle colour palette of coral, seashells and sand.
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. I am going to talk more about this in my next blogpost, so please follow the link at the bottom of this post to read that.

Until next time – Happy Summer Knitting!
