Getting Started:
One full skein of Color A is used for each placemat, and I only had about 3 yards of yarn left when I finished. To be safe, I recommend buying 1 skein of yarn for each placemat, then 1 extra in case you run out on any of them. Just keep your receipt in case you don’t use it (or add it to your stash!)

Surface Crochet: Insert hook down through front of work and pull up a loop, *insert hook down through front of work one st away and pull loop through everything on hook, repeat from * to end of design, cut yarn from below, pull it through, then sew it back over the outside of the last loop and weave in ends.
