This pattern is knitted in double and plain knitting giving extra depth to the placemat & coaster, and all in a nice cheery yellow to brighten any table.
I used a version of the Alternate Cable Cast On method, instructions are included in the pattern.
One placemat & coaster used approximately 1½ balls of RICO Creative Cotton Aran (50g 85m/92 yards per ball) in Light Yellow
4mm Straight Needles
Placemat: Approximately 26cm/10” by 20cm/8”
Coaster: Approximately 10cm/4” square
