Thanks dear. Yes, I know.... but not a pro of course!!!! When I look at it I knew it was easy....But when I tried I was a bit confused. And I was wondering whether I should do the border separately only after completing the table mat? Thank you for your help.
Hello Zeeniya, I am not sure if you want to recreate this table mat 'exactly', but I have a pattern already graphed that has the same type of open shell repeating pattern. It is a square, starting from the centre. I will send you a friend request, and perhaps we can talk more about it.
The edging on the table mat you've provided would more than likely have been worked around the perimeter of the design, after the initial square of patterning was complete, just working each side around, not worked separately and crocheted on. Perhaps I've misunderstood your question, and you already know that, sorry.
The design I have has a few picots within the basic design. I was wondering if you worked the design from this pattern, you would perhaps get a feel for how it should crochet out using a length of chain, and working back and forth. Just a thought.
I enjoy crochet very much and have done both with thread (which I love) and yarns. I am interested in learning to do Irish crochet lace. I would very much like to join your group.
