Rumpelstiltskin Placemats And Coasters Set



I am a huge fan of fairytales and the TV show “Once Upon A Time.” One of my favorite characters from the show is Rumpelstiltskin. I’m never quite sure if he is a good guy or a bad guy and that’s part of the fun of following his story line.

This pattern (also sometimes called a sedge stitch pattern) is inspired by Rumpelstiltskin as the stitch pattern creates a rumpled affect. Thank you so much for trying this pattern. I do hope you enjoy it! If you need any help with my pattern please contact me: crochetrochelle@gmail.com. 

Sincerely,

Photographer: Tyson Davis

Skill Level: Easy

Materials:
Worsted weight yarn; Red Heart Super Saver pictured
Yarn/tapestry needle

Hook: US size K/6.50mm (or hook size needed to obtain gauge)

Abbreviations: (US terms)
CH = chain
DC = double crochet
JOIN = sl st
SC = single crochet
SL ST = slip stitch

Gauge:
2 sets* = 1.5" (length) *set = 1 sc + 1 dc in same space
4 Rows = 2" (width)

Measurements:
Placemats – 12” x 17” approximately
Coasters – 4” x 4” approximately


Notes:
Change colors as desired. I used a patriotic color scheme and I think any holiday color theme would be fun. Use a sports team’s colors to create a personalized gift too.
  
Pattern Instructions:

Placemat
Chain 46, loosely.
Row 1: (1 sc, 1 dc) in 2nd ch from hook, *skip next ch, (1 sc, 1 dc) in next ch; repeat from * to end of row, ch 1, turn.

Ravelry

https://www.ravelry.com/


One of my all time favorite online places for crochet resources is Ravelry.com. If you haven't visited this site and you are a crocheter or knitter...do it right now! You will fall down the rabbit hole of free patterns and amazing resources. But it's okay. You will be better for the adventure.


I've been a "raveler" since November 2011 and I can't tell you how many times I've gone to this awesome website for inspiration, desperate gift ideas and all kinds of patterns for all kinds of things. I love that I can type in a keyword or two and the powerful search tool in Ravelry comes back with all kinds of options.

My designer profile page makes it easy for fans and followers to find my stuff. It's also a great resource for me, since sometimes I need to go back to a pattern I created. I also really like that I can sell patterns via Ravelry's paid pattern store option. The interface is easy to use and if you are interested in making money from your pattern designs it's definitely worth checking out.




That's about all I've got time for today. I've got to get some serious laundry done, check on why my boys' are so quiet in their rooms, and get a bit of lesson planning done for school next week. As always, I'm delighted to bring you crochet inspiration and a bit of fun too! #rockthehook #crochetrochelle
