Yesterday I posted my Lion Brand’s Kitchen Cotton Yarn Review and said that, after reading Sincerely Pam’s post Decorating With Yarn | My Daughters Room, I really wanted to add crochet to every room in my home as well. Though Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton is discontinued, and I haven’t completed my placemat and coaster set, I will be making more of these to add crochet to my dining room. For now, I get to be selfish and horde this placemat and coaster just for me (just like nearly everything else I make!) Check out the placemat coaster free crochet pattern below.

The Ambrosia Placemat and Coaster, named after the food and drink the Greek Gods consumed, is a fun and quick pattern to work up. This light, airy design will protect wood as well as add a fun crocheted piece to your dining area. Not big on placemats? Whip up a quick coaster for a under a vase or coasters in the living room. Guests will love them no matter where they are!
