Trevarren Placemat Set
Worked in a simple yet beautiful reversible stitch, the Trevarren Placemat Set exudes a modern graphic style suitable for both town and country tables. The pattern is reversible to give two different looks. The front face has a strong cellular pattern while the reverse side shows smooth undulating ribs with dotted purls set in a neat grid.
The set includes instructions for two sizes of placemats plus matching coasters. Details are also given for an extra-thick hot-pad and larger tablemat to protect your table from hot dishes.
