This is a wonderful yarn.  It is an acrylic and nylon blend and works up very  quickly!

I went to Joanns for the first time last week ( I know, I don’t get out much, right? 🙂 )   and I saw this yarn.   I had seen a few fellow makers using this yarn and when I saw it decided to get a couple colors in it.  I decided on the stripes.  They had both stripes and solids.  I got 2,  1 fresh yellow stripes and 1 fresh teal stripes.  I used the yellow and made 1 mat and plan on doing matching coasters.  The skeins are 8.8 ounces and I have 4 ounces left after making 1 mat.  Mat measures 20” x 12” with fringe.

And, if any of y’all are wondering, “why on earth have you never been to Joanns before?”  Well, I live in a small town and the nearest Joanns is about a hour away, and I have a Hobby Lobby in the town right next to me, so I have always just went to Hobby Lobby.  I like Joanns.  They have so much crafting supplies!  Don’t get me wrong, Hobby Lobby does too, but Joanns is centered more on crafting whereas Hobby Lobby has craft supplies and home decor.  So, if I had to say, I think Joanns has a much bigger selection.   I only spent about 20 minutes in there, which really isn’t a long time to soak everything in and look around, but I plan on going back soon and looking for a good while ( I had my dad and brothers with me, and lets just say yarn is boring to them.  They didn’t complain though.)

I have included step by step instructions and pictures on how to make and attach the fringe.

Cut yarn.

Now make tassels.

You can just cut 6’’ pieces of yarn or you can find a piece of cardboard or something flat that is about 3’’ wide to wrap your yarn around.  I used my Susan Bates knit check gauge to wrap my yarn around, it was the perfect size.

Step 1:

wrap yarn around your piece of cardboard (or whatever you chose)  Or you can just cut 6’’ pieces of yarn, 1 by 1.

Step 2: Cut yarn down one side.

You know have 6’’ pieces of yarn.

Step 3:  Take your mat and insert your crochet hook in a loop on one of the short sides of the mat from the back to the front.

Step 4:  Take a piece of fringe and fold it in half and put it on your hook.

Step 5:  Pull fringe through loop

Step 6:  pull the 2 end pieces through the loop and pull tight.  1 piece of fringe completed.

Continue these steps all the way down both short sides of the mat until both sides are completely fringed.

These make wonderful patio decor!  Be sure and share with me your finished projects on social media.  I love to see what y’all create with my patterns!  Happy Crocheting Y’all!
