Certainly! Here’s a simple crochet placemat pattern for you:

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in your desired color(s)
  • Crochet hook (size G/4.0mm recommended)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle


  • CH: Chain
  • DC: Double Crochet
  • SC: Single Crochet
  • HDC: Half Double Crochet
  • SL ST: Slip Stitch
  • ST: Stitch

Pattern: Step 1: Foundation Chain

  1. Start by making a foundation chain with a multiple of your desired placemat width. For example, you could start with a chain of 40 for a standard placemat size.

Step 2: First Row

  1. In the 2nd CH from the hook, work 1 SC. Skip 2 CH, then in the next CH, work (1 DC, CH 1, 1 DC). Skip 2 CH, then in the next CH, work 1 SC.
  2. Repeat the pattern between the asterisks (*) across the row. You should end with a SC in the last CH.

Step 3: Second Row and Beyond

  1. CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), turn your work.
  2. In the CH-1 space from the previous row, work (1 DC, CH 1, 1 DC).
  3. In each CH-1 space across, work (1 DC, CH 1, 1 DC).
  4. Work 1 DC in the last SC from the previous row.

Step 4: Repeat Second Row

  1. Continue repeating the second row until your placemat reaches your desired length.

Step 5: Edging

  1. Once you’ve reached your desired length, you can add a simple edging to finish the placemat.
  2. Work 1 round of SC stitches around the entire placemat. In the corners, you can work (SC, CH 1, SC) to create a neat corner edge.
  3. Join the round with a SL ST in the first SC. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.

Step 6: Finishing

  1. Give your placemat a gentle block by dampening it slightly and shaping it to lie flat. Allow it to air dry.
  2. Your crochet placemat is now ready to use!

Feel free to adjust the pattern by using different colors, yarn types, or adding additional stitches for a more personalized touch. Remember, gauge and size can vary based on your yarn and tension, so you can adjust your hook size and stitch count accordingly. Happy crocheting!
