Materials: J. & P. Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen, 13 balls of Dk. Ecru, and 1 ball each of Skipper Blue, Hunter's Green and Spanish Red.
Milward's steel crochet hook No. 5.

This material is sufficient for 4 place mats, each about 11 x 16 inches, and a center mat about 14 x 36 inches.

Center Mat. Starting at short side, with Dk. Ecru make a chain to measure about 20 inches, turn. 1st row: S c in 3rd ch from hook, * ch 1, skip 1 ch, s c in next ch. Repeat from * across until row measures 14 inches. Cut off remaining chain. Ch 2, turn. 2nd row: S c in 1st s c, * ch 1, skip ch-1, s c in next s c. Repeat from * across. Ch 2, turn. Repeat the last row until piece measures 36 inches. Break off. Attach Skipper Blue and make a row of s c, with ch-1 between each s c, all around edges; at corners, make 2 s c with ch-1 between.

Fringe. Cut 3 strands, each 3 inches long, of Dk. Ecru. Double these strands, forming a loop. Pull loop through ch-1 sp, and draw loose ends of fringe through this loop. Pull tight. Knot a fringe in each ch-1 sp all around. Trim evenly.

Embroidery. With Hunter's Green, make a double block of cross stitch in each corner, starting 1 inch in from edge and making a cross st over each s c. Then, with Skipper Blue, starting at center of double block, work a row of cross stitch across one side to center of double block at opposite side. Then, at center of this row, work a triangle, having lower point toward center of runner. Work other sides to correspond. Now, with Spanish Red, work a row of cross stitch on both sides of Skipper Blue, starting at corner of one block and working across to corresponding corner of block at opposite side. Work other sides to correspond.

Place Mats (Make 4). Starting at long side, make a chain to measure about 20 inches. Work exactly as for center mat until row measures 16 inches. Cut off remaining chain. Then work as for center mat until piece measures 11 inches. Break off. Complete place mat as for center mat.
